Oklahoma Bass Bash
The Oklahoma Bass Bash was started in
2005 for middle and high school bass students. The four-day camp
alternates locations each summer between The University of Oklahoma
and Oklahoma State University. A typical day includes:
warm up and technique classes, workshops on OK All-State audition
material, a jazz class, and a solo class, in which students may
perform prepared solos for their peers with a professional
accompanist. Additionally, each student will receive a private
lesson with one of the instructors. Chamber music is also a particular
emphasis of the Bass Bash, so students are divided into different
groups to rehearse bass ensembles to be performed at a final concert.
Breakfast and lunch take place on campus and evening meals will be at
different local restaurants. There will also be evening
activities that both resident and commuter students can participate
in. Past activities have included a talent show, movie night,
and bowling. Each student will receive an OK Bass Bash t-shirt.
- The faculty of the Oklahoma Bash Bash includes highly qualified
public school teachers and university professors. They all
have professional orchestra experience and have studied with
teachers from across the country. Please look at the bio
page for more information about each of these teachers.
