WCPE FM Offers Tribute to Ludwig van Beethoven

TheClassicalStation.org Airs Beethovenfest December 14-16

William Woltz, Music Director for WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces WCPE’s annual three-day salute to Ludwig van Beethoven, the monumental composer from Bonn, whose belief in the power of music empowered him to triumph over personal tragedy.

“Each year, WCPE spends three days in tribute to Ludwig van Beethoven’s greatest symphonies, sonatas, concertos and more,” offers Woltz. “We culminate in the glorious Ninth Symphony on the presumed day of his birth (December 16) at 11 a.m.”
