From the Studio: Cellist John Marshall

Cellist John Marshall joined Verne in the studio this morning to talk about CELLObration Spokane 2017.  On January 7, more than 40 cellos will perform the music of Bach and the Beatles at the EWU Music Building Recital Hall.  The free concert begins at 7:30. Information available from Eastern Washington University.

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.
