I have an impressive presence. I am like big garden; however, instead of producing a variety of flowers I produce a variety of tones in the low-pitched range. I am amazing! I require a long air column or strings. I am played by a Bassist! I am kind of young! It is said that I was created in the late 16th Century. I have gone through many transformations. Several types of wood are used in my construction. These may include pine, cedar, poplar, beech, spruce and maple, and sometimes even aluminum base. I am popular and important in symphonic concerts, jazz chamber music ensembles, tango, folk music, rock, etc.
To learn more about this fascinating instrument and its Master, please join us on November 11, 2014 for an evening of education, camaraderie and joy. Our guest is Mr. Brian Perry, Bassist with our very own DSO. Mr. Perry is one of the newest members of the DSO.

I am a fascinating instrument and have quite a presence! You can find me played in concert bands, in symphony, chamber music, etc. I am a woodwind instrument capable of producing many rich tones, I am elegant and often of intense coloring. I am tall and distinguished, made of six parts. Although I have been played since earlier times, my modern style was introduced in the 19th century. Am I easy to play? Do I have any concerts pieces composed just for me? There is so much to learn about me!
