Bicentennial events start now

The Indiana University Bicentennial offers many events between 2019 and 2020 on all IU campuses and at other locations around the state and nation.

These events will stem from the Office of the Bicentennial’s Signature Projects, Project Proposals, and other qualifying events being hosted with IU-affiliated campuses, schools, departments, and organizations.

ISB President-Elect John Schimek, who hosted the 2007 ISB convention at Oklahoma City University, will serve as Chair of the 2019 convention.

The convention is expected to attract over 1,300 attendees from around the world, and will feature more than 100 performances, lectures and masterclasses as well as exhibits and a week-long program for young bassists for ages 18 and under.
