Northwest Arts Review: 9 April, 2020

ErikBrooks.jpg

Our focus this week remains on the COVID-19’s disruptive effects on the arts at all levels and in all dimensions. We’ll spend time with Methow Valley artist and art teacher Erik Brooks and Spokane Symphony Music Director James Lowe. Dan Webster drops by to share another visual diversion for this homebound time, and we’ll hear from Nathaniel de la Cruz, another of the CdA Symphony Young Artist winners.

After more than 25 years of teaching music, theater and English in San Francisco schools, Jim relocated to Spokane in 1995 to become organist/music director for St. Augustine Parish on the South Hill. Since around 2004, with the help and patience of Verne Windham, he has been able to realize his long-standing dream of doing radio. Jim specializes in classical music, but also can do the occasional jazz show. Jim and his wife, Carol, fill their free time caring for llamas, rabbits and chickens after having watched their two children grow up and leave the nest.
