Spokane Public Radio

Interview with James Lowe and Haochen Zhang (Part 2).

On this cold, snowy morning, two musical men arrived at our station for an interview: Spokane Symphony Music Director Finalist and Guest Conductor James Lowe and accomplished pianist Haochen Zhang, who will feature in the symphony's upcoming “Classics 6: Passion’s Pursuit” concert.

Performances will be at 8 PM on Saturday, February 16 and 3 PM on Sunday, February 17 in the Martin Woldson Theatre at The Fox.

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.
