Learn About the Bass
If you’ve been to an Inside the Orchestra concert, chances are you’ve already met Mike! He is one of our core bass players, doing in-school and public programming with us. Let’s join him at his house as he tells us about his double bass and gives a performance of an Irish piece called (in English) The Mountain of Geal gCua (or Mt. Geal Gua).
