Sadly, we are reporting that the doublebass which is used by both the Manhattan College Orchestra and the Manhattan College Jazz Band was found with the neck broken off from the body of the instrument. The doublebass is stored in the room across the sanctuary from the sacristy in the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers. It was last confirmed to be in working order on Sunday, April 18th, and was used for our annual Performing Arts Spring Concert.
The doublebass is a vital piece of musical equipement, and used regularly in our ensemble programs. It is our hope that anyone with information on how it became damaged will email us at email@example.com.
