From the Studio: Mount Saint Helens Symphony

Spokane Public Radio

At 7:30 pm Wednesday, the Eastern Washington University Symphony Orchestra will perform the Mount Saint Helens Symphony in Showalter Auditorium on the Cheney campus. Verne talks with conductor Dr. John Marshall about the performance and the accompanying images commemorating the 40th anniversary of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens.

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.
