118 double bass orchestra

As part of the opening ceremony on Tuesday 14 August BASS2012 will make a Guinnes World Record attempt. An orchestra of 118 double basses featuring both professionals and amateurs will be playing a concert at “Plænen” in Tivoli Gardens. This massive bass sound can only be heard on a special occasion like this. Music will be composed and arranged specially for this purpose.

An outstanding opportunity to start the convention and spread out the news to the general public. We hope you will enjoy and support this event!
