From the Studio: Jorge Luis Uzcátegui

Alison Highberger

Earlier today, Spokane Symphony Assistant Conductor Jorge Luis Uzcátegui came to our studio and broke down the program of their upcoming “Baroque 2: Handel’s Journey” concert. Performed alongside the Spokane Symphony Chorale, it is designed to take audiences on a journey through Europe in the Baroque tradition with pieces by Handel, Corelli and more.

The two performances will be at 7 PM on February 23 in the Westminster Congregational United Church of Christ, and 3 PM on February 24 in the Spokane Valley Church of the Nazarene.

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.
