Description

A rare and exciting evening of double-bass virtuosity. McBride, an iconic jazz musician and six-time Grammy winner, is praised for his energetic and fiery approach to the instrument and has been likened to a force of nature onstage.  Meyer, a classical bassist who has toured with Yo-Yo Ma, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile and others, is been praised as being “not only a legitimate heir to this tradition, but also a great energizing factor to the field” by The New York Times. (He’s also a Blair adjunct professor.)

Weaving together jazz and classical influences with the force and fire of two award-winning string musicians, this innovative performance will take the bass from the background and onto center stage. Sure to be an unforgettable evening.
