The Florida Chamber Orchestra (FCO) was founded in 1995 by the prominent conductor Marlene Urbay, descendant of a family of musicians. Their repertoire ranged from the baroque and classical to Gershwin, Lecuona, and most representative composer of Europe and Latin America. Since its founding the FCO has successfully toured countless concert halls, and has participated in music festivals and ballet performances.
