Past SPR Events

SPR hosted a table at the Fall Arts Preview before the Spokane Symphony's free Labor Day Concert on Monday, September 3, 2018.  from 4-7 p.m. in Comstock Park. 

Staff, board members, and volunteers for the station love meeting with visitors and talking about what's coming up on the air, events, and our ongoing news and arts coverage.

The Season Preview is organized by the Spokane Folklore Society, giving performing arts groups in the region an opportunity to connect with those who believe in the importance of the arts.

The free concert starts at 6 p.m. The Spokane Symphony Orchestra has a tradition of playing parts of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, among favorites from the world of pop, Hollywood and Broadway to highlight the upcoming season.

North Idaho College's campus hosts the annual Art on the Green each summer, and SPR joined the fun Aug. 3-5. The SPR booth had ticket giveaways, free drawstring backpacks for kids, crafts, and freebies.

Art on the Green is a celebration of art and community in the northwest. Taking place solely on the old Fort Sherman grounds on campus, it has become a marketplace and performance space. More than 135 visual artists take part, and many regional performers take the stages -- many have been heard in recent years on KPBX.
