Northwest Arts Review: 1 October, 2020

This time around on NWAR, we’ve got a nice mix of music, theatre and literature. Chris Maccini introduces us to Spokane theatre artist Sid Al Thumali, the Spokane Symphony’s James Lowe drops by for one of our periodic chats, and Verne Windham has a surprise guest!

Spokane Symphony Music Director, James Lowe

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.
