BRAD FELT (1956-2011)

As a performer, composer and educator, Brad Felt took the all-inclusive Detroit music tradition to the next level, while bringing the euphonium and tuba into the 21st century as front-line improvising instruments in the idiom of modern jazz. His Detroit musical connection landed him in the bands of everyone from Roy Brooks to Martha Reeves. Mr. Felt was a veteran of multiple overseas tours, including two stints with Howard Johnson’s Gravity. He received two fellowships from The National Endowment For The Arts for composition/ performance and one from The Michigan Council For The Arts. In addition to teaching at his home studio, he was an applied improvisation instructor at The University Of Toledo. Brad died of pancreatic cancer October 6, 2011.
