Melbourne Community Orchestra

What better way to start the New Year than with an evening of orchestra Jazz favorites. The night heats up when the Swingtime Jazz Band joins MCO. A perfect collaboration of music groups.
 
As an organization, the MCO strives to increase the appreciation of orchestral and instrumental music through free public performances and education. They have been committed to the Arts and seeking to promote cultural pursuits and the education of young and developing musicians for over 25 years.

In Memoriam 2019: The Musicians We Lost

Dec 31, 2019

Heroes of alt-rock and idols of classic Hollywood, jazz luminaries and Pulitzer-winning composers, cult legends and rule-breakers, rising stars and old masters: Music communities around the globe lost dozens of shining voices this year. Here's NPR Music's celebration of some of the musicians who left the world in 2019.

Tune in to our annual Sound Waves Top 25 Albums of 2019 on New Years Eve, December 31 10am - 2pm. 

2019 will go down as a tumultuous year. From scandals to trials, to whistleblowers to trade wars, the year was loud, divided and confusing.  One of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic ravaged the Bahamas for days this summer. Close to us, WFIT lost two long time colleagues this year, Jack Garrison (DJ Sandman) and Bill Carrigan, host of Classics for a Sunday Evening.

It’s the end of a year that had a plethora of fantastic new releases.  There is nothing more fun for radio people to get to unearth gems frequently and every month of 2019 had something to explore. Some older artist showed back up, some brand new artists got in the game. Here's 25 of our favorite albums of 2019.
