That's right, the UTPA double bass studio is officially celebrating the holidays!
Last night the bass studio presented the end of the semester recital. According to the description of one of the VIPs in attendance (our beloved cello professor) the recital was...FESTIVE!
Yes, we had Santa hats on and beautiful decorations on stage (even a Christmas tree by the piano!). Lots of Christmas carols were performed between solo numbers and thanks to a very good selection of arrangements by the late George Vance everything sounded very good, everything sounded...FESTIVE!
Juries are just around the corner but after that we will take this show on the road. We will perform at the Edinburg Children's Hospital, at the Casa de Palmas Renaissance Hotel, at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce and, believe it or not...a car dealership!
I hope everyone is as thankful for this semester as I am. We got a lot done and I had the privilege of seeing big improvements on everyone's playing. Way to go kiddos!
I will post more here about our upcoming bass ensemble holiday performances but I want to go ahead and wish you all a great Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!
