Charlie Castleman is leaving the Eastman School of Music, but not before talking with us.

After teaching at the Eastman School of Music for 40 years, Charles Castleman has announced he's accepted a position in Florida at the Frost School of Music. On the next Backstage Pass, Charlie brings a few bows and his historic violin to play and chat with Julia Figueras about his move, his mentors, his students, and more. Tune in on Friday, August 15 at 1 PM.
