APO & Whoa! Guide to the O! - Double Bass

During the lockdown Auckland Philharmonia musicians are busy practising their music at home. But they are about to get a video call from Custard or Buzz from Whoa! Studios who want to find out more all about their instruments and the orchestra.

How does a violin make a sound?
What’s the difference between a clarinet and an oboe?
Why is the French horn so curly??

In this episode, Buzz chats to Bella Zilber to learn all about the Double Bass. Is it heavy? How low can it go? What is their job in the orchestra? Featuring a surprise guest at the end!
