From the Studio: Eastern Washington University "Second Tuesday" Performance

ewu_students_mar._9__2021_0.jpg

We again welcome Eastern Washington University music major students for a "Second Tuesday" performance on KPBX's Piano Bench program. Jim Tevenan hosts, aided by Dr. Jody Graves of the Eastern music faculty. Music is by Josef Haydn, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann and Claude Debussy. Our musicians are pianists Tonya Ballman, Kathryn Amdahl, Carly Bair and Christian Skok, also violinist Dominic Treis and cellists Grace Ahola and Spencer McConnachie.

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.
