From the Studio: Holy Names Music Center Presents "The Trout Awakens"

Today in the studio, we were visited by Nancy Klingman from Holy Names Music Center here in Spokane.  She is in the vocal department there and was here to talk about a concert happening this weekend.  On Sunday, April 24th at 7:00pm at the Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane, faculty and students will be performing, including the "Trout" Quintet by Franz Schubert.

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.
