This is an announcement for two upcoming concerts featuring National Symphony Orchestra double bassist Jeffrey Weisner. Jeff also teaches bass at the Peabody Institute, and he maintains a blog through Peabody as well. Below the announcement are links for information on the venue, tickets, and the like. I hope that readers in the area can make it to the performances!
I wanted to let fellow bassists (and a few family members) know about some upcoming concerts I’ll be playing in this month. I’ll be premiering the revised version of “Alba and Ostinato” for bass and orchestra, written by my friend Tom Schnauber, with the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra. The concerts are Friday, April 27 at 7:30 and Saturday, April 28 at 8:00 at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. The Friday performance is actually a casual “open dress rehearsal” event, where the conductor chats with the audience and the musicians don’t dress up. The Saturday performance is a more traditional concert format. The rest of the program is choral music by Vaughan Williams and Orff.
