From the Studio: Zuill Bailey celebrating Beethoven's 250th

Spokane Public Radio

Zuill Bailey, artistic director of The Northwest Bach Festival, visited the studio to talk about Connoisseur Concerts' performances this week to celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday. String quartet performances are at 7:30 pm Tuesday at the Hagadone Event Center in Coeur d'Alene, 7:30 pm Wednesday at Barrister Winery in Spokane, 7:30 pm Friday at Hamilton Studio in Spokane, and 3 pm Sunday at Barrister Winery in Spokane. 

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.
