Backstage Pass with Chris Van Hof--1/28 & 2/2/20

Chris Van Hof came to Classical 91.5 as an Arts Leadership Intern from the Eastman School of Music.  Shortly thereafter, Chris took the reins of the afternoon hosting shift for Classical 91.5, bringing a new energy to the shift held for more than 30 years by the late Mordecai Lipshutz. 

Some years later, he left us as our afternoon announcer, and headed back to graduate school. Chris returns to our airwaves as a professor of trombone at Ball State University and a sub/extra for the Indianapolis Orchestra. We welcom him back with open arms Tuesday, January 28 at 1 PM. The show will repeat Sunday, February 2 at 1 PM.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras was the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI Classical until June 30, 2023 when she retired after more than 26 years of service. She also hosted the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
