Across the miles: masterclass with James Vandemark

Digital Series:
James Vandemark Double Bass Masterclass
19 Mar 2012 (Mon)
9.00 p.m.
Steven Baxter Recital Studio
Free admission

James Vandemark who is hailed by the New York Times at his Lincoln Centre recital as "an exceptionally gifted string player and a musician of taste, intelligence and the best spontaneous musical instincts, with an unerring sense for exact intonation" will conduct a masterclass with the students of Yong Siew Toh Conservatory via video-conference from Eastman School. It is so fascinating to become aware how technology has brought the world closer together to share our ideas and dreams.

This is one reason to stay up at night!
