The YB program is a bass “camp” that happens within the main convention, with programming specifically for pre-college students. The daily schedule runs from 9 am to 4 pm with workshops and masterclasses with international artist teachers, and rehearsals in large and small ensembles that prepare us for a final Young Bassists Orchestra performance on Saturday, June 10th.
The ISB has received a last minute donation that will allow us to offer financial support to students (18 and younger) to attend the Young Bassists program this summer during the ISB Convention in Ithaca, NY, June 6-10, 2017. Scholarship will cover registration, housing, meal plan, membership, and possibly some transportation support.
Teachers – we are looking for you to nominate students you know will benefit from the immersive experience but who are financially unable to attend. Please have the students send a short note describing why they would like to attend the YB program and a brief description of financial need, and the teacher will submit a short letter of support for the student to attend the YB program. Please send all materials to info@ISBworldoffice.comwith subject line “Young Bassist Scholarship Application.”
