Don't be surprised later this month when we launch our new! Yes, you will still be able to listen live and donate securely online. Your experience will be more intuitive, as the site will be easier to navigate. We've redesigned to make "What's On Now" more prominent and achieved cost savings in the process. Take a sneak peek at the screen shot below and keep an eye out for the new site - same address - later in September!

Update for our Westchester County listeners
Our Mt. Kisco, NY translator (W209CJ at 89.7 FM) went off the air on Sunday, June 15 at 7:17 pm EDT due to an electrical system power failure. At this time, we are not investing in repairing the system, as last fall we were notified that our lease on the site is not being renewed. Thus, we will not repair the translator at this time. We are sorry for the disruption to your FM service. Please know you can listen to WMNR anytime online (see WMNR Listen Live on the left of this page) or by asking a smart speaker to “play WMNR Fine Arts Radio.”

We are planning an application to FCC to move to a 147-foot cell tower at Green Street and the Saw Mill River Parkway. If all goes well, we will have 89.7 FM back on the air in 3 to 4 months. We will post updates as the project progresses. 

Please call the station anytime at 203-268-9667 with questions.

The cancellation of the Tanglewood Music Festival was an understandable disappointment to many, including WMNR as we've broadcast Tanglewood concerts live for decades. In response, we've added two programs to our Friday evening schedule. At 6:00 pm, join us for Music from Tanglewood, curated and hosted by WMNR's Susan Prince. Susan has chosen marvelous performances, all recorded at Tanglewood, most in concert, from orchestral to chamber, from instrumental to vocal. Immediately following, please stay tuned for The Best of the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Brian Bell, featuring recordings from the BSO archive.

On Sundays at 3:00 pm you can hear Tanglewood concerts, recorded live at the Koussevitzky Music Shed in 2018 and 2019. We'll keep our tradition alive in this way and look forward to sharing live broadcasts with you in 2021. Thus, our late Friday and Saturday evening programs will not change this summer and we're grateful to broadcasters Will Duchon, Mike Shakinovsky, Susan Kennedy, and H. William Stine whose programs will continue rather than go on hiatus.


We're pleased to tell you about a new partnership with the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival! Norfolk, in Litchfield County, Connecticut is the summer home of the Yale School of Music. Each Sunday at 7:00 pm, WMNR's Gary Fountain will host the broadcast of one of the Festival's 2019 concerts. Join us each Sunday for upcoming instrumentalists, singers, and composers collaborating with acclaimed musicians, presenting world-class performances which explore traditional and contemporary chamber music repertoire. 


In June, we began our Music Mountain broadcasts on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm! Our NY Philharmonic concerts go on summertime hiatus to make room for weekly chamber music concerts from Music Mountain's 2019 season. Join us weekly for performances by ensembles such as the Escher Quartet, the Harlem Quartet, and the American String Quartet.

WMNR Behind-the-Scenes Videos

To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, WMNR Fine Arts Radio produced a video featuring 27 broadcasters and staff. The piece is a loving tribute with an inside look at the people who make up the station. Produced by WMNR’s own H. William Stine, with Associate Producer Megan Stine.  After Bill and Megan produced the Anniversary video, they teamed up again for a slightly less serious, but completely accurate, look at our broadcasters.  To view the videos, click the picture.
