From the Studio: Piers Lane


Pianist Piers Lane joined Verne in the studio this morning to talk about his career including his performance earlier this week at the Northwest Bach Fest.  Lane is a versatile pianist who frequently performs at prestigious music festivals and has a discography of over 50 CDs including solo recording, "Piers Lane Goes To Town". 

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.
