Northwest Arts Review: 17 December, 2020

This week’s NWAR features two hopeful conversations about regional music as we check in with SSO MD James Lowe and Music Conservatory of CDA Executive Director Julienne Dance. Also, Chris Maccini continues his series of talks with the latest Spokane Arts Award grantees, this time welcoming writer and illustrator, Chelsea Martin. And the Clarion Brass provide some sonic seasonal cheer.

Clarion Brass Artistic Director William Berry

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.
