From the Studio: Tim Westerhaus

Spokane Kantorei Choir and Collegium Orchestra

St. John’s Cathedral music director and Kantorei Choir conductor Tim Westerhaus visited the studio today, with fellow conductor Max Mendes chiming in by phone, to talk about the 2nd concert of the St. John’s Music Series: “Come to the Woods: Pacific Northwest Beauty.” It is a full choral concert celebrating the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, featuring poetry by John Muir, as well as  accompaniment by a traditional bluegrass band on the piece “High Lonesome Mass.”

The performance will be on Sunday, November 4 at 3:00 PM.

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.
