From the Studio: Holy Names Music Center Community Music Day

A couple more interviews rounded out a full Friday morning in the studio with Verne.  Nancy Klingman, voice instructor, talked about a Holy Names Music Center annual staple--Community Music Day.  Tomorrow, Saturday, October 1st from 10:00am to 1:00pm, you can enjoy free food, music, instrument petting zoos, mini lessons, music-inspired crafts, and more.

Turning from music to dance, we had Susan Dankovich in the studio to talk about the Silver Spurs Youth Folk Dancers.  This organization is based at the Spokane Woman's Club, and there are groups of various age levels from kindergarten through 12th grade.  They rehearse weekly and give performances throughout the year, exploring different heritages and cultures through dance.

Interview with Susan Dankovich of Silver Spurs Youth Folk Dancers

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.
