From the Studio: Holy Names Music Center presents "Wild West Classique"

This morning  Nancy Klingman and Heidi Gnos Kuban stopped by the studio to talk to Verne about Holy Names Music Center'supcoming presentation of "Wild West Classique: Music Among Friends" on Friday, May 5 at 7pm at the Bing Crosby Theater. 

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.
