Double Bass Reunion – Celebrating James VanDemark’s 40 Years at Eastman

Thank you to all bass alumni who came back to celebrate James VanDemark’s 40 years at Eastman so far. We celebrated with a special recital featuring current bass students and JB’s alumni, recognized him with an award at the celebration dinner, and had a bass alumni mixer on Saturday evening. This truly exceptional reunion would not have been possible without the work of Tanya Chanphanitopornkit and Amy Blum, and the alumni who celebrated the work of their teacher both at Eastman and from afar.
