In our traditional festival opener, Gary Karr, double bass, and Harmon Lewis, piano, introduce 17 double bassists from around the world who have spent July at the KarrKamp summer workshop. Audiences marvel at the deep, resonant sound of heartfelt music-making.
We already have hints about this year’s amazing concert, and will keep you posted as further details emerge.
So far, we can reveal that you’ll hear a duet prepared especially for it by Masanori Ichikawa and Ayaka Katsumata who are returning again from Japan, as well as a special new group of pieces featuring Victoria Symphony harpist Annabelle Stanley. You’ll also get to hear Gary perform in a trio with two students traveling from Taiwan.
