From the Studio: Nosferatu with the Spokane Symphony

This Halloween the Spokane Symphony will present the silent horror film Nosferatu with live soundtrack as part of their Films at the Fox series.  Pete Porter, film historian and chair of the theatre and film department at Eastern Washington University, talked with Verne today about the film and what to expect in terms of content, characters, and plot.  This unique experience allows the audience to see one of the first "vampire films" from the silent era as well as hear the music live and in front of them.  Nosferatu is a one-night only event tomorrow evening, October 31st at 7:30pm at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. 

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.
