Giuseppe Verdi

We have a special live performance recording of the Verdi Requiem this week.

Vedri, of course, was first and foremost an opera composer. One would expect his Requiem to be dramatic, and Verdi does not disappoint.

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.)
