From the Studio: Northwest Opera

Spokane Public Radio

This gray Thursday morning, the KPBX studio was filled with the beautiful singing voices of Mickey Zhang and Emily Buckmaster from Northwest Opera, accompanied by Lois Robertson on piano. The three musicians arrived at the station with Musical Director Tim Campbell and Director Donna Skoog to discuss their latest production: a musical adaptation of “Much Ado About Nothing,” the tale of two intertwined love stories written by William Shakespeare.

Performances will be at 7:30 PM on November 2 and 2:00 PM on November 3 & 4 at the Spokane Children's Theatre.

Suitable for general audiences.

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.
