On Friday, November 4 the Spokane Symphony will present the first concert of its new INTERSECT series, "From China to America - Merging Cultures". Conductor Eckart Preu stopped by our studio this morning to talk with Verne about tonight's concert and the INTERSECT series which brings together music, art and culture to create a unique concert experience. "From China to America - Merging Cultures" will feature works by Mozart, Chou Wen-chung, Chen Yi and Zhou Tian.  For more information and tickets visit the Spokane Symphony website.

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.
