Luís Tasso Santos

General Details

I am a music performance and composition student.

I have performed in places such as the Perth Concert Hall and Smetana Hall in Prague and I’m currently principal double bass and principal contrabassoon in the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, tutti double bass and principal contrabassoon of the Fremantle Symphony Orchestra, and principal contrabassoon of the Western Australian Youth Orchestra. I am a casual double bassist and clarinettist for the New Plymouth Orchestra in New Zealand, and first bassoon of the University of Western Australia Symphony Orchestra. I have also worked in musical pit orchestras playing flute, clarinet, saxophone, and double bass.

I compose for many ensembles, but mostly for high school and university students, including for exams. I have also worked with orchestras performing my works.

My current composing projects include writing my thirteenth and fourteenth symphonies, both polystylist but greatly varying in musical content. I have also recently conducted a recital for four of my own works, three of which were for large orchestra.

Available every school holidays!
