Mozart's Attic - Thursday, July 18th 10:00 pm


Classical music nearly lost it in the 20th century.

The serialism and atonality that was embraced by many composers, musicians, and academics was beyond the appreciation of most audiences, and listeners abandoned it  in large number.

That era is largely behind us now, and this week we will showcase ten post-modern, contemporary composers who have much to say about the many directions music can take as it continues to evolve -- as, of course, it must.

In the process, these ten composers give us much worth giving a listen to.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
