From the Studio: Pianist Peggy Reich

In the studio today, we were visited by pianist Peggy Reich, who is in town to play a concert at the Steinway Piano Gallery.  She is also involved with several education events while here.  She talked with Verne about her recent album releases as well as her interest in Latin American and Spanish music, which she plays often.  Her concert at the Steinway Gallery is tomorrow (Saturday) evening at 7:00pm.

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.
