Mozart's Attic Sunday January 30th at 6:00 p.m.

Franz Schubert

We don’t know why Franz Schubert left his Eighth Symphony unfinished 200 years ago. The reasons are probably quite commonplace, but coupled with the composer’s tragic life story the tale has grown greater than the sum of its parts in the public imagination.

No matter. The Unfinished Symphony stands as a masterpiece on its own, and we’ll hear it as our featured work this Sunday night.

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.)
