Northwest Passages Book Club - The Sound of Spokane written by Jim Kershner

Oct. 7, 2020, 4 p.m.

No ticket needed for this event - Please just visit our livestream page at the appointed time!  In 1945, a musical “taskmaster” named Harold Paul Whelan arrived in Spokane and willed a symphony orchestra into existence. Others before him had tried and failed. Yet this orchestra evolved into the Spokane Symphony and is now celebrating its 75th birthday. Almost from the beginning, the orchestra established itself as the premier arts institution in the city. While you can't hear the Spokane Symphony live right now, don't let that stop you from listening to the stories that built it into what some call "“the smallest major orchestra in the United States.” Free event - click on our livestream tab at 4:00PM 10/7/20 - *No need to hit the GET TICKETS button *
