From the Studio: Spokane Civic Theatre Presents: Holding On-Letting Go

The Spokane Civic Theatre will present Holding On-Letting Go March 17 through April 9 in the Studio Theatre.  This morning, playwright Bryan Harnetiaux, director Jack Delehanty and cast member Susan Hardie chatted with Verne in our studios about the play, which takes a humorous and heartrending look at end-of-life issues.  The performances on March 19, March 26, April 2 and April 6 will feature a special guided dialogue session after the show with the cast, production team and representatives from Hospice of Spokane.  Tickets and more information available from the Spokane Civic Theatre.

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.
