USU Bass Festival

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be having a 2021 USU Bass Festival. Registration will reopen 2022.

We plan to resume the festival in 2022 and will update this page once details have been finalized. Last March the residency of our festival guest, Berlin Philharmonic bassist Edicson Ruiz, was cut short due to the pandemic. However, we were able to record these videos with Edicson prior to everything closing down. Please enjoy these videos from the 2020 festival with Berlin Philharmonic bassist Edicson Ruiz.
