Bass by the Sea: Michael Cameron Competition and Double Bass Camp

Bass by the Sea will provide two opportunities to experience performances by some of the area’s finest double bassists. 

  • The Michael Cameron Double Bass Competition |  8:30 a.m. |  Hardy Hall |  Gulf Park campus

The competition’s participants are Mississippi residents, and their performances will be adjudicated by two guest clinicians. At 4:30 p.m., the first and second-place winners of the competition will perform a concert along with bass ensembles.

  • Double Bass Camp | Between the two public events

Between the two public events, bassists from ages 18-35 will receive intensive instruction and learn from internationally acclaimed professionals in a day-long camp.

The inaugural competition and camp have garnered immediate support from some of the world’s leading double bass brands. Kolstein Music, Lemur Music, and BassScores Editions have each contributed to the event. Regional support comes from the Hattiesburg Concert Association.

The event is part of the Ambassador Series, a cultural outreach project of USM’s Gulf Park campus, presenting musical performances along the Mississippi Gulf Coast throughout 2022-23.
