Scholarships for Competition Winners

We are thrilled to share exciting news about the upcoming Louisiana Bass Festival! This year, we are honored to have a special sponsorship from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for our Orchestra Competition winner. The ISO has generously offered the winner a chance to substitute with their world-class orchestra – an incredible opportunity to gain professional experience.

In addition, over $30,000 in scholarship funds are available thanks to a sponsorship from the Interlochen Arts Academy. Guarneri House has also generously sponsored a $15,000 bass on loan to the Bass Fest Solo Competition winner for one year. We are also grateful for sponsorships from Pirastro and Leatherwood Rosin.

The event’s website has published all of this year’s competitions and events. Be sure to visit the event’s web page to learn more and register by the March 20th deadline.
