Double Bass Symposium at PSU!

Double bass students of all levels, double bass enthusiasts, and music teachers are all invited to the first ever Double Bass Day at Pittsburg State University on Sunday, April 19, from 1-5pm. in PSU's Kelce Auditorium.

Join us for an afternoon of masterclasses by Sue Stubbs and a seminar by master bass restorer Aidan Mullarney. Ms. Stubbs will join us from Missouri State University to conduct masterclasses for students of any level. Mr. Mullarney of Kansas City Strings will be teaching us about the mechanics and maintenance of the bass.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to prepare a piece, perform it, and have immediate feedback from an excellent bassist. Students of all levels are encouraged to play.

In addition to the masterclass, this is a great chance to learn about how to take care of your bass, as well as to gain insights into how the instrument is constructed. Also not to be missed is the experience of seeing and trying out fine basses that Mr. Mullarney will bring.

Please contact Sallie Lupis, adjunct bass teacher at Pittsburg State University, at her hotmail account "sallieeliza" with any questions, and to sign up to play for Ms. Stubbs.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
