Tune in and enjoy the symphonic music that makes good movies great!

The Score with Edmund Stone is a weekly celebration of symphonic music in film - a fascinating cultural adventure through America’s best-loved art form. Produced in Portland, Oregon, each one-hour program is crafted around specific composers, film genres or themes.

 

Host Edmund StoneEdmund Stone grew up on an English farm. As a teenager he toured in Romeo & Juliet before moving to Scotland where he reviewed films for BBC Radio, Dundee Courier and various U.K. magazines. Relocating to Los Angeles in 1980, he covered the Academy Awards and interviewed such entertainment personalities as Alfred Hitchcock and Mel Blanc.

An Oregon resident since 1990, Edmund continues to voice commercials and emcee events. Notably, he narrated the west coast premiere of Ella Milch- Sheriff’s “Can Heaven Be Void” with Salvador Brotons and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Edmund voiced Vivaldi's sonnets to "The Four Seasons" with Monica Huggett and Portland Baroque Orchestra; "Peter and the Wolf" with Oregon Pro Arte Orchestra; and performed Peter Schickele's sportscast to Beethoven's "Fifth Symphony," also with Oregon Pro Arte Orchestra. Recently Edmund narrated Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait” with Southwest Washington Wind Symphony; Tennyson’s “Enoch Arden” at the Astoria Music Festival; and he hosted “Music from the Movies” with the Oregon Symphony.

Outside of classical music and film, Edmund is passionate about the rescue and ethical treatment of animals. In 1999 he co-founded a sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees in Cameroon, West Africa.
