After delighting audiences in The Soldier’s Tale, Robert McBride returns to the PCSO stage alongside Portland’s own Lisa Neher to recite the ticklingly clever, wonderfully rhythmic poetry of Dame Edith Sitwell, set brilliantly to music by a young William Walton.
The Devil, The Soldier's Tale
Robert McBride retired from a three-decade-long radio career in 2018 and is now doing voice-over work, interviews, narration, and audio books. He’s also a composer and a percussionist. He wrote a work titled Waltzology for the Portland Columbia Symphony’s 25th Anniversary Season and Huw Edwards conducted the premiere in 2007. His works have been performed in Oregon, Idaho, Texas, and British Columbia. He’s narrated Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra and is thrilled to add The Soldier’s Tale to his repertoire.
