SPRING BASSES 2016: Wed 17 - Fri 19 February
The aim of the course is to encourage younger members or possible new members to come to a select gathering before the Summer School and meet bassists who already know the set up and ethos of Bass Club.
This year Spring Basses will be more for the young intermediate players where special attention can be given to strengthen technique and develop chamber music.
These players will able to develop confidence and there will be a solo concert and master class. This will be an excellent opportunity to engage in performing skills and for younger members to become aware of the possibilities of the bass.
A piece to perform in an open class should be brought and the level will be around Grade 5 and upwards.
