For over thirty years, Joel Quarrington has served as the Principal Double Bassist of many ensembles including the Canadian Opera Company, The Toronto Symphony and Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra and most recently, the famous London Symphony Orchestra.
Joel has made several solo recordings; his early Bottesini recordings on the NAXOS label are considered by many to be definitive. In April 2010, his recording, “Garden Scene”, won the 2010 Juno Award for Best Classical Recording in Canada.
In 2011, he received a Special Recognition Award for Outstanding Solo Performance from the International Society of Bassists and in 2015 they awarded Joel the same award for Outstanding Orchestral Performance.
Joel is the new Double Bass Professor at the Conservatoire de la Musique in Montreal and gives masterclasses in the summers at the Orford Arts Centre in Quebec’s beautiful Eastern Townships. He also teaches at the University of Ottawa and at the Royal Academy of Music in London where he is a “Visiting Artist”.
