Being mindful of our future's uncertainty and with an abundance of caution, the ISB has decided to move the 2021 convention online to keep our presenters, attendees, and guests safe. Our goal is to recreate, as closely as we can, the traditional in-person ISB convention, including virtual after-hour bass hangs with friends, and a virtual exhibit hall. Keep your calendars marked for June 8-12, 2021, and watch this space and your email inbox for more news!
Live evening announcements and watch parties for our headliners:
Whether you're a current member, lapsed, or never been a member before, we've got a registration option for you! Register before Thursday, May 20, 2021 to ensure you can attend the concerts, seminars, workshops, lecture-demonstrations, panel discussions, masterclasses, Young Bassists Program, etc.
The Young Bassists Program at the ISB 2021 Virtual Convention will continue the tradition of offering the most amazing program available for young musicians of high school age or younger, in a rich and supportive atmosphere. We are committed to the future of the bass, and young bassists are that future. This year, students will come together online for a week of intense and exciting virtual music-making!
