From the Studio: Madeline McNeill presents "Music Valley"

Spokane Public Radio

Madeline McNeill visits the studio to talk about "Music Valley," a musical she conceived of and wrote during the pandemic, with lyrics by Ellen Welcker. The performance includes a host of local musicians and artists. "Music Valley" will be performed Sunday, August 15th, at 6:30 pm, outdoors in Olmstead Brothers Park in Kendall Yards.

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.
