Mozart's Attic Sunday January 23rd at 6:00 p.m.

Before leaving his hometown of Salzburg, Mozart wrote the first of his three great masses, the only one he actually finished, the Coronation Mass in C major. We’ll hear it this Sunday, and then — like Mozart — we’ll poke around the Vienna musical scene which, in the classical period, also included Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert. Each of them had much to contribute to the musical center of Europe in the day.

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.)
