From the Studio: flutist Dr. Sophia Tegart

Spokane Public Radio

Dr. Sophia Tegart, Clinical Assistant Professor of Flute at Washington State University's School of Music, visited with Verne about the many celebrations  of the flute that are happening on the Palouse campus this month, including WSU Flute Day on Saturday, October 12. On October 18, the 100-year Celebration of Dick Kattenburg, a composer who died in a concentration camp, she will 

play his flute sonata. While in the studio, Sophia played two pieces live: Katherine Hoover's Winter Spirits for solo flute, and CPE Bach's Sonata in A Minor, Movement 2.

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.
