UI doublebass student performs for Edgar Meyer

UI doublebass student Patricia Silva participated in a double bass master class with Grammy-Award winning bassist Edgar Meyer on Friday, April 13 at the University of South Dakota Vermillion. Doublebass  studios from throughout the midwest were contacted to nominate an outstanding student from their studio to perform for Meyer. Silva was one of three students selected. She performed the prelude from Bach Cello Suite No. 3, receiving rave reviews from Meyer. A native of Brazil, Patricia is a doctor of musical arts candidate at UI and a section bass member of the Des Moines Symphony. Meyer, a recipient of the MacArthur Award and an Avery Fisher Career Grant, is hailed by the New Yorker as “…the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument.”
