Symphony Week 2021, Monday

A long-standing KPBX tradition returns after a COVID-caused hiatus. It's Symphony Week, five mornings dedicated to the upcoming concert seasons of regional orchestras, with a special emphasis on the return of the Spokane Symphony to the stage of the Fox Theater for performance in front of a live audience. In this first segment Verne Windham welcomes Symphony Music Director James Lowe and Executive Director Jeff Vom Saal, along with Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski for conversation and a few music samples.

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.
