Northwest Arts Review: 11 June, 2020

Today, two positive and I think uplifting conversations: we meet Diane Sherman, a Spokane artist who merges yoga, journaling, painting and drawing into her work, teaching, and way of living. We’ll also check in with cellist and director of the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival Kevin Krentz, whose creativity has been more than stretched in these difficult times. Music is from the 2017 Methow Valley Music Festival.

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.
