From the Studio: Watoto Children's Choir

The Watoto Children's Choir, comprised of Ugandan children of many ages, visits the performance studio with their adult leaders, Paul and Eunice Musaali and Mercy Imusalaba. The children and their accompanying musicians perform songs written by members of the Watoto Church, which serves orphaned and vulnerable children and women with a variety of programs. The choir tours with different children each year, allowing as many children as possible to perform for audiences around the world.

The Watoto Children's Choir performs at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church (8441 North Indian Trail Road, Spokane) at 7 PM, Thursday, September 26th. For more information on the choir and tour, visit https://www.watoto.com/app/choir/calendar.

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.
