Bass Band

Comprised of undergraduate and graduate bass students, various sizes of ensembles are formed from trios to octets and rehearse twice weekly.  The literature studied includes original works and transcriptions from all periods of Western music and contemporary pop culture; repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to Metallica. Special projects in the past have included working with composers on new pieces, collaborating with choreographers on movement-related works, and the commissioning of Julia Wolfe’s bass octet – Stronghold. Concerts are presented each semester and occasional performances are given off-campus, the most recent being at the Bang On A Can Marathon in New York City.
