From the Studio: GU Department of Theatre & Dance presents "Coming Home: A Soldier's Project"

Director Charles M. Pepiton and Professor Kathleen Jeffs, along with actor Cooper McCoy visited the studio this morning to introduce Gonzaga's upcoming production of a local work, entitled Coming Home: A Soldiers' Project. This is the story of transitions and perceptions: from base to basketball, from service to civilian, and how connections are made and un-made.

Tickets are on sale now, but all performances are free for active duty and retired military (please call (509) 313-6553 to make arrangements). For more information and to purchase general admission, student and faculty tickets, please visit the Gonzaga University Department of Theatre and Dance website.

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.
