The Miró Quartet is one of the world’s most celebrated and dedicated string quartets, having been labeled by The New Yorker as “furiously committed” and noted by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer for their “exceptional tonal focus and interpretive intensity.” For the past twenty years they have performed throughout the world on the most prestigious concert stages, earning accolades from critics and audiences alike. Based in Austin, TX, and thriving on the area’s storied music scene, the Miró takes pride in finding new ways to communicate with audiences of all backgrounds while honoring the longstanding tradition of chamber music. Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet was awarded first prize at several national and international competitions, including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. Since 2003 the Miró has served as the Faculty Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Texas at Austin’s Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music.

Robert McBride: Senior Announcer

Robert McBrideI have my mom to thank for getting me interested in music and for being the first person to suggest radio as a career. I have both my parents to thank for making possible my degree in music composition, and for patiently supporting me, one way or another, through the many years I played in rock bands. While I failed to become a rock star, I still manage to compose occasionally. After thirty years in radio I still enjoy it! I’m on the air weekday afternoons from 1:00 to 6:00 and Saturday nights from 8:00 to 10:00, when I preside over Club Mod, a program devoted to modern music both old and new. I also enjoy hosting preconcert conversations for the Oregon Symphony and other public speaking opportunities. I’ve been part of the All Classical Portlandia team since 2000, thus setting a new personal record for employment longevity.
