From the Studio: CDA Symphony offers Classical Family Fun with "Bolero . . . and more"

Spokane Public Radio

Verne got a preview today of  "Bolero ... and More," the  Coeur d'Alene Symphony concerts on January 18 and 19 that offer classical music fun for the whole family, including "Ravel Mother Goose Suite" and "Beeson Prometheus Rapture". 

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.
