We’ll be finishing up our interview with Michael Hovnanian on this week’s Contrabass Conversations episode and get a chance to hear some of his double bass playing. If you’d like to catch up with his previous interview segments, you can visit his Contrabass Conversations page here.
As Drew McManus mentioned on his blog Adaptistration, Michael kept readers updated with the different segments of the recent Chicago Symphony European tour on his CSO Bass Blog. Here are some photos of the CSO bass section during the tour. In addition to hearing Michael’s Contrabass Conversations interview, you can check out bass section colleagues Brad Opland and Rob Kassinger on the CBC podcast.
