For the past three seasons, Senior Announcer Robert McBride has graciously hosted All Classical Portland’s live broadcast program, Thursdays @ Three. He has engaged countless musicians, live audiences and radio listeners with his intelligent, thoughtful and often humorous interactions with world-class soloists and celebrated local artists. However, Robert is transitioning towards his retirement next year, and as such will pass the baton on to host and producer Christa Wessel. Christa has been a long-time host of the Oregon Symphony’s pre-concert conversations, and as such, has a wonderful rapport with musicians around the community. The show won’t be the same without Robert, but Christa will surely bring her own special talent (and beloved laugh!) to the program. Visit¬†allclassical.org¬†for a schedule of upcoming shows.
