Classical Music

The Spokane String Quartet's February program blended art and music for two of the three selections heard. Here's a flavor of what the Fox Theatre audience saw, a visual accompaniment to the Quartet's broadcast performance on KPBX's Concert of the Week tonight at seven.

First, two images by Mikalajos Ciurlionis, late 19th/early 20th century composer and artist, whose c minor quartet is the second work on the  program.

If you drew up a Venn diagram for musical genres, the classical and hip hop categories probably would not overlap, or at least not much. But a duo that calls itself Black Violin is merging those two types of music and adding other influences as well.

The members of Black Violin performed at The Fox in Spokane Saturday night. Earlier in the day, they took the stage at East Central Community Center to talk about their path into the music business.

SPR hosted a table at the Fall Arts Preview before the Spokane Symphony's free Labor Day Concert on Monday, September 3, 2018.  from 4-7 p.m. in Comstock Park. 

Staff, board members, and volunteers for the station love meeting with visitors and talking about what's coming up on the air, events, and our ongoing news and arts coverage.

The Season Preview is organized by the Spokane Folklore Society, giving performing arts groups in the region an opportunity to connect with those who believe in the importance of the arts.

The free concert starts at 6 p.m. The Spokane Symphony Orchestra has a tradition of playing parts of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, among favorites from the world of pop, Hollywood and Broadway to highlight the upcoming season.
