|Bass Band Concert|
|Comprised of undergraduate and graduate bass students, various sizes of ensembles are formed from trios to octets and rehearse twice weekly. The literature studied includes original works and transcriptions from all periods of Western music and contemporary pop culture; repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to Metallica. Special projects in the past have included working with composers on new pieces, collaborating with choreographers on movement-related works, and performing with a Balinese Gamelan orchestra. Concerts are presented each semester and occasional performances are given off-campus, the most recent being at the Bang On A Can Marathon in New York City.|
|Hartt's Percussion Ensemble first performed in 1947 and began rehearsing and presenting concerts on a regular basis in 1950, distinguishing it as one of the first ensembles of its type in the United States. Since its inception over 50 years ago the ensemble has had two directors: Alexander Lepak and Benjamin Toth.|
