ABOUT THE HOST


Edmund 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 Vancouver and Beaverton Symphony Orchestras; Tennyson’s “Enoch Arden” at the Astoria Music Festival; and he hosted “Music from the Movies” with the Oregon Symphony. In April he narrates Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to Mendelssohn's music with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

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.
