From the Studio: Guitar Hour Christmas Special Featuring the Sandpoint High School Choir

Guitar Hour Christmas Special (Part 2)

This annual Christmas edition of the Guitar Hour featured live performances of Christmas favorites and modern holiday songs by the Sandpoint High School Choir, under the direction of Jon Brownell.

In addition, two students of Leon's, Naomi Anderson and Jacob Atencio, each performed solo classical guitar pieces.

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.
