WVU Cello Bass Day

October 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

West Virginia University double bass day

About the Event

Join us in Morgantown for an exciting and fun day of low strings nerdom! Bass clef pals will unite and form an awesome ensemble of both cellos and basses. Get ready for some low string rumbling! If you need some new inspiration, are tired of practicing by yourself, or want to up-level your musicianship, please join us to celebrate making music together. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in group workshops (separated by instrument), play with the cello and bass choir, and enjoy fellowship with other bass clef enthusiasts. New this year: more advanced separate cello choir and bass choir music, in addition to the full ensemble. Come make new friends, improve your technique, and leave playing better than you ever have!

Please note: If you would like a private lesson with Dr. Ellis or Dr. Kohn, those will be offered on Friday, October 27 or after the workshop on Saturday, October 28 for an additional fee. Please indicate your interest in this on the registration form, and Dr. Ellis will be in touch to make arrangements.

Appropriate for students, amateurs and professionals of all ages that have been playing for at least one year and/or can read music. If you have questions about participating in the workshop, please contact Erin Ellis. All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Register today for an unforgettable experience!
