From the Studio: Whitworth Symphony Orchestra Presents "Women Composers: the Untapped Source"

Verne Windham welcomes Dr. Philip Baldwin and Dr. Judith Schoepflin of Whitworth University Music Department for a discussion of women composers and the curation of the University's concerts highlighting their talents and contributions.

Whitworth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Baldwin, will perform "Women Composers: the Untapped Source," with selections by Louise Farrenc, Amy Beach, Cecil Chaminade, and Vivian Fine, at 8pm on April 11, 2021. Dr. Judith Schoepflin will give the pre-concert lecture. Watch the performance virtually on Whitworth University Music Department's YouTube Channel.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
