Symphony Week 2021, Wednesday—Bozeman Symphony

Composer-in-Residence Scott Lee

Symphony Week at Spokane Public Radio continues with a preview from another Montana orchestra featured previously on Concert of the Week. The new Bozeman Symphony season, the first planned by new Music Director Norman Huynh, debuts the 25th and 26th of September at Bozeman's Willson Auditorium. Here's Jim Tevenan's conversation with Nroman Huynh, puncutated by the music of Johannes Brahms, played in January 2020 by the orchestra.

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.
