d’Bassists is a double bass ensemble based in Singapore. It comprises undergraduates, alumni and guest members of the National University of Singapore Symphony Orchestra, one of the performing and production groups managed by the NUS Centre for the Arts.
The ensemble was formed to enhance ensemble-playing skills, as well as promote cohesion and teamwork amongst its members. Its name was specially selected as it sounds like The Bassists and represents a shorter version of Double Bassists.
The ensemble made its public debut on 10 January 2007 during A Journey through Time, one of the ExxonMobil Campus Concerts productions held at the NUS Theatrette.
