BGS girl attends RNCM Young Basses workshop


BGS senior girl Eve Pessagno attended the RNCM Young Basses workshop on Sunday.

She worked in small groups and focused on ground bass lines and how they continuously repeat, and how the melody sits on top of it. 

Eve also learnt about bass music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, the ground bass line from Pachelbel's Canon in D and then created variations on it, which she then performed with the rest of the group at the end of the morning with guest soloist Roberto Carillo-Garcia (principal bassist at the Halle orchestra). 

The morning culminated with Roberto playing the winning compositions from a competition held back in December.
