Celebration of milestones culminates in Carnegie Hall concert for UNT Regents professor

It’s a year of milestones for University of North Texas Regents Professor of Double Bass Jeff Bradetich. His treasured bass turned 250 years old this year; he celebrated his 60th birthday – 50 of those years have been dedicated to playing bass; he marked 30 years of honing the skills of talented musicians in his summer strings institute; his foundation just celebrated its first decade; and now he plans to commemorate it all by performing at Carnegie Hall 35 years – almost to the day – after his debut in the prestigious venue.

“There’s something very special about a New York concert,” Bradetich said. “It’s a place people will travel to from across the world to see a performance. There are even a number of people from this area who are travelling there just to be a part of the experience.”
