thursdays-at-three

Each week, All Classical Portland presents Thursdays @ Three, live broadcast concerts showcasing local musicians, arts partners, and visiting artists.  Senior Announcer Robert McBride hosts the lively format of music-making and conversation for members of an intimate studio audience. That’s what we call Building Cultural Community!

Thursdays @ Three concerts are broadcast live and in real time from our studios in the Hampton Opera Center, and programs last about an hour. If you would like to join our studio audience, please select an event below.  These are small group audience experiences that fill up fast. Seating is available on first come, first served basis.

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.
