The Florida Orchestra is now one of the first orchestras in the country to provide our audio program notes as a podcast. “SoundWaves with The Florida Orchestra” is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music and more, as well as FloridaOrchestra.org. All free.
TFO continues to innovate new ways to be accessible to all. The podcast allows you to download, listen and learn about the concert, including music excerpts, anytime. Listen on your daily walk or on your way to work. Pause, rewind, fast-forward or even slow the audio. Get notified when a new episode is available, or listen to previous episodes. All at your fingertips, at your own pace.

TFO’s program notes tell the story of the music and the composers and are authored by Kurt Loft, a freelance writer and former longtime music critic with the Tampa Tribune. They are voiced by Andi Tafelski, TFO’s social media & visual content manager.
All versions of our program notes – audio and printable – are linked from TFO’s digital program pages on our website, which replace our printed program book. Click here for this week’s concert, which features Gershwin’s An American in Paris, Wynton Marsalis’ Tuba Concerto, Duke Ellington’s Black, Brown and Beige and more. You’ll also find links to bios of TFO musicians, lists of our generous donors and much more.
The Florida Orchestra continues to provide new ways to experience a deep, personal connection to the music – both before the performance and in the concert hall. If you have questions or want to learn more about the podcast, please email us at email@example.com. We value your feedback.
