ISB 2025 Convention
June 2-7, 2025
Florida State University
Tallahassee, Florida

The ISB 2025 Convention will be held June 2-7, 2025 in beautiful Tallahassee, Florida, home of our host Florida State University. The event will take place from Monday, June 2, 2025, through Saturday, June 7, 2025. We anticipate over 1,000 bassists, exhibitors, collaborative musicians, family members, and guests from around the world to attend the concerts, seminars, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, panel discussions, masterclasses, exhibits, Young Bassists Program, and ensembles for non-professional bassists. In addition, the ISB will be holding solo, jazz, orchestral and young bassist performance competitions, and the eleventh biennial ISB Maker's Competition over Monday, June 2nd and Tuesday, June 3rd.

As a non-profit organization that puts its revenues back to work for its membership, we rely on ISB members to help make the convention a great experience for everyone who attends. We are grateful for the many presenters over the years who have donated their time, travel and talent as a way of giving back to the worldwide bass community.
