WAYNE – Join Wayne State College voice studio students this Wednesday, March 14 as they celebrate Franz Shubert’s melodies and piano compositions.

According to a release from the college, fans in early nineteenth-century Vienna of Franz Schubert held an informal gathering called Schubertiads.

Wayne State College will host their own event from Ley Theatre, located in the Brandenburg Education Building at 7:30 p.m. this Wednesday. The students will be accompanied by Staff Accompanist Shelly Armstrong and directed by Assistant Professor Dr. Sarah Farr.

Though Schubert lived only 31 years (1797-1828), he is revered as the last classical composer and one of the first romantic composers. His compositions embrace legendary melody, rich harmony and lyrical beauty. Schubert is often considered a musical genius.
