This year marks the 40th year of teaching at the Eastman School of Music for double bassist James VanDemark.

He has helped shaped generations of double bassists; many of his students have gone on to have great teaching and performance careers. On the May edition of Backstage Pass, some of Mr. VanDemark’s students—past and present—join Julia Figueras to talk about their teacher…and play a bit, too…while Mr. VanDemark supplies wit, wisdom, and a touch of nostalgia. Backstage Pass with James VanDemark airs Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 1 p.m. on Classical 91.5.

Backstage Pass is a monthly live performance program that gives listeners the backstage experience of meeting local and visiting artists “up close and personal.” This episode of Backstage Pass will repeat Sunday, May 7 at 1 p.m. on Classical 91.5.
