From the Studio: Exploring Earth's Soundscapes

George Halekas spoke with Verne Windham this morning about his project, "Earth Soundscapes." This presentation explores the roots of music, placing the glorious musical heritage of humanity within the surrounding environment of nature's symphony.

George Halekas will offer two presentations of his program, "Roots of Music - Exploring Earth's Soundscapes."

Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Johnston Auditorium at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, in Spokane

Friday, November 18 at 7:00 p.m. at Wenatchee River Institute's Barn Beach Reserve in Leavenworth, WA.

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.
