Maestro Jan Pellant on CDA Symphony's 40th season

Coeur d'Alene Symphony

Maestro Jan Pellant visited the Spokane Public Radio studio on Tuesday, October 2. He is the new
Artistic Director and Conductor of the Coeur d'Alene Symphony as it celebrates its 40th anniversary. 

The season's first concert, Nineteenth Century Grandeur, is Friday, October 5, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 6, at 2 p.m. Maestro Pellant will give a brief lecture at the Salvation Army Kroc Center 45 minutes before the concert time.

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.
