From the Studio: Gary Edwards

Spokane Public Radio

Composer Gary Edwards came for a chat in our studio today preceding the EWU Music Department's presentation of “Unfolding Creation: New Operas in Concert,” a recital in which excerpts from his work will be performed alongside those of other Pacific Northwest composers.

The concert will be at 7:30 PM this evening in the EWU Music Building.

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.
