Bad Boyz of Double Bass present playful performance May 26

The Bad Boyz of Double Bass, a quartet featuring faculty and alumni of the University of Iowa School of Music, will present a playful performance at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 26, in the Riverside Recital Hall (the former St. Thomas More Church).

The Bad Boyz are Volkan Orhon, who teaches bass in the UI School of Music; UI alumnus Paul Sharpe, who teaches at Texas Tech University; UI alumnus Anthony Stoops, who teaches at the University of Oklahoma; and David Murray, who teaches at Butler University in Indianapolis.

Projecting an irreverent attitude, the Bad Boyz play everything from classical to rock to rap, including music from Finland, Turkey, Brazil and other countries. Their UI concert program will include several arrangements made by members of the group.

The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
