Chicago Bass Ensemble
The Chicago Bass Ensemble is a unique chamber music ensemble made up exclusively of double bassists.
The double bass is not often seen as a solo instrument, so audiences are surprised–pleasantly, I assure you–to hear the wide variety of melodic and emotional music the double bass is capable of.
You are probably about to ask “Wait, you mean four bass players? Aren’t there any other instruments?”
Yep, four bass players. Just bass. No other instruments. It’s one of the more unusual ensembles you’ll see this year. Who are the musicians of the Chicago Bass Ensemble?
Now’s a good time to visit our blog postings about our upcoming performances. You’ll want to know where you can see us live.
You can also hear a few samples on SoundCloud.
