Double Double Bass

It can get lonely in the back corner of the orchestra when you're the only bass player. Tonight, I got company, when Devon, a young woman with a blonde bass, was already there. Her bass had a pleasing tone, and she promptly sightread her way through the parts.

The sound, with two (or more) members of the lowest part in the string section, gives the orchestra more punch, greater presence, and it's sure easier and more fun for me.

The concert date -- May 29th--is approaching, but it should go well now.
