Music That Matters: Archie Chen and Rhona Gouldson-Chen

Opus 11 of Music That Matters, with host Jim Tevenan welcomes duo pianists Archie Chen and Rhona Gouldson-Chen for four-hand piano music by Johannes Brahms, Antonin Dvorak and Claude Debussy, along with solo pieces and their insights into professional, life partnership and the power of music to heal and bring balance to our lives.

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.
