Terry Pruitt

bass

Terry Pruitt is principal bass with the Santa Fe Symphony. He also plays bass with the New Mexico Philharmonic. Originally from Alton, Illinois, Terry became hooked on the double bass at the age of ten. While completing his degree in music performance at Southern Illinois University, he studied with Henry Loew of the St. Louis Symphony and played with the St. Louis Philharmonic. After a year with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, Terry was principal bassist with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra for 16 years. In summers, Terry has performed at the International String Orchestra Festival in Eisenstadt, Austria; the Bear Lake Festival, in Utah; and returns regularly to Santa Cruz, California for the Cabrillo Music Festival. He has taught at several universities, and currently teaches privately. When not practicing, teaching, or performing on the bass, Terry can (or can’t!) be found exploring the back roads of the Southwest on his BMW motorcycle.
