Soprano Heather Parker and pianist Bonnie Robinson joined Verne in the studio this  morning to preview their upcoming recital "A Joyful Noise! Songs of Springtime, Love and Longing".   The concert will be at May 13 at 7pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Spokane and will feature music by Mozart, Grieg, Obradors, Rodgers & Hammerstein and more.

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.
