Senior Recital Hannah MacGillivray - double bass

March 11 at 8:15 p.m.

Free event open to the public

Hannah Macgillivray fell in love with the bass when she first picked up a bass guitar. Since then, she has traded in the ‘fun-sized’ version for the real thing and has developed a keen interest in orchestral music, currently working to complete her Bachelor of Music in Double Bass Performance under the tutelage of Charles Garrett. Hannah has been a member of the Calgary Youth Orchestra, Calgary Civic Symphony, University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, University of Calgary Jazz Orchestra and the University of Calgary Orchestra. She has spent her past two summers attending the Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy, where she received in-depth orchestral training under a distinguished faculty. Hannah has had the opportunity to perform with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Red Deer Symphony Orchestra and will be appearing as a soloist with the University of Calgary Orchestra later this year. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree, Hannah plans to continue her education by pursuing graduate studies in music performance. In addition to her formal studies, Hannah enjoys exploring different avenues of music and strives to become a versatile performer.
