This Week's NWAR takes us to Coeur d'Alene's Art on the Green, a traditional event available only virtually this year. We'll also hear from a young musician on the rise, violinist Yvette Kraft, back from a successful time at the Grumiaux Festival in Belgium. And we check in with David LaFever of the Methow Valley Interpretive Center. The Center recently received one of the federal government's CARES grants.

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.
