Professor Hanlon and the Fredonia Bass Studio invite you to be a part of Fredonia Bass Fest, presented by the School of Music at The State University of New York at Fredonia.  Each year, we welcome professional players, college students, high school students, teachers, and adult learners to join us for a day of performances and classes presented by Professor Hanlon and our world-class guests, with opportunities for networking and bass fellowship during the day.

New this year, Fredonia Bass Fest will offer a unique Pre-Professional Intensive designed specifically for high school-aged bassists who are interested in learning more about possible career paths in music. The Pre-Professional Intensive (PPI) is an opportunity to meet with Fredonia Bass Fest faculty members, play for faculty and receive feedback, ask questions, and learn about the collegiate and professional music world.  

Students must apply for consideration and will be invited to participate based on submitted application materials. 

Note: There is no additional cost to participate in the Pre-Professional Intensive, but Bass Fest registration is required. The PPI will take place the morning of Bass Fest (February 5, 2023).
