Symphony Week 2016: Violinist Erica Richardson

Erica Richardson

In celebration of Spokane Public Radio's Symphony Week,  Erica Richardson performed music of Eugène Ysaÿe in the performance studio, and spoke with Verne Windham this morning.

Ms. Richardson is a violinist with the Spokane Symphony Orchestra.

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.
