February 1, 2015, Chicago Bass Festival

Once again, we’ll appear at the Chicago Bass Festival!

February 1, 2015, on the grounds of the Ravinia Festival – see the link above for details. Festival registration for full participation is $50 ($45 for MYA members), but if you inquire, you can purchase an “observer” ticket for $15. This allows you to watch all the lectures, workshops and performances, but not actively participate. Perfect if you’d just like to see us perform.

The festival begins at 9:00 am, and we are currently scheduled to perform at 1:00 pm in Bennett-Gordon hall.


  • Josh Harrison
  • Doug Johnson
  • Julian Romane
  • Jacque Harper
  • Andy Anderson
  • Neal Rodack
  • Matthew Coley, marimba
  • Leslie B. Dunner, conductor

At this performance, we’ll reprise the piece we premiered in March, 2014, Rural Sketches for marimba and six double basses!


  • Anderson: Quartet 1987
  • Osborne: Dreamtime
  • Jeanrenaud, arr Harper: Livre
  • Iachimciuc: Rural Sketches
  • Byrd, arr Cameron: Ave Verum Corpus

  2. Marc Temkin says:

    Are there tickets available for only the concert rather than attending the entire bass festival event?

    • Jacque Harper says:

      Marc: Yes, you can register as an “Observer” for $15. See the next-to-last question on bassfest.mya.org/home/faq . I’m not sure what mechanism you use to register that way, but perhaps there is a selection on the registration form.
      Thank you for asking, and giving me the opportunity to share this information!!
