San Francisco Winter Bass Bash 2022

Nina DeCesare was an amazing guest artist for this annual San Francisco tradition!

With Nina DeCesare · Baltimore, MD

Nina DeCesare joined the bass section of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in September 2020 after five years in the Oregon Symphony bass section.

She has also performed with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, the Seattle Symphony, the Houston Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, the Sun Valley Music Festival, the Knights Orchestra, the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, and the Oregon Bach Festival.

Nina was the featured artist for the 2022 San Francisco Winter Bass Bash, an annual event organized by Richard Duke.

Here’s Nina’s complete recital from this event, and it was such a pleasure to have her in town!
