From the Studio: Eckart Preu introduces this weekend's Classics 9: Musical Sorcery

Eckart Preu

  Eckart Preu stopped by the studio this morning to introduce the Spokane Symphony's 9th Classical concert of the season: Musical Sorcery. He also remembered Donald Thulean, conductor of the Spokane Symphony from 1962-1984, who passed away earlier this week.  

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
