Music That Matters, Op. 15: A Triute to the Late Bill Roesch

MTM/Bill Roesch, 2

Opus 15 of Music That Matters brings a tribute, produced by Verne Windham, to long-time volnunteer host of Vox Humana's opera edition, Bill Roesch. Bill retired to Sandpoint after a career in theatre in California, and we happily benefitted from his great experience and expertise in his true musical love, opera.

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.
