Faculty Recital (Mon.)
Recital Rehearsal (Thurs.)
Public Recital (Fri.)
The Wabass Institute requires an UNLISTED video submission uploaded to YouTube with your very best performance (maximum video length: 10 minutes). There are no repertoire requirements, but below are some suggestions:
Classical: Two contrasting works from solo bass literature. A few orchestral excerpts.
Jazz: Two contrasting tunes from the standard jazz literature.
In any order, perform the melody (head), take a solo (as many or few choruses as you wish), and lay down a mean bass groove.
Be creative! make your own arrangement.
