‘Eye of the Tiger’ as played by an Orchestra of 80+ Double Basses

My son plays the double bass, and each year takes part in a really cool summer camp called BassWorks – a one week summer music camp of only double bass players.  The camp includes students of all ages and levels of abilities, and the faculty includes some of the best double bass players in the country and world.

For their final concert, in addition to more classical pieces, they usually do one popular song.  This year it was Survivor’s ‘Eye of the Tiger’.  Check it out!

 

If you search for BassWorks on YouTube, you can also sample the entire 2.5 hour final concert which includes the different smaller ensembles and the full orchestra final concert.  The faculty recital is also worth checking out to see that the double bass is much more than just a accompaniment instrument in an orchestra.
