Our 2016 First Prize winner of the Klein Competition, and a dynamic performer of multiple genres, bassist William Langlie-Miletich, 21, got his start in music at the age of eight playing the riffs of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin on the guitar. Since picking up the double bass at the age of 11, Langlie-Miletich has had an extensive performance career in classical, jazz, and many popular genres of music.
Langlie-Miletich has soloed with the Seattle Symphony and has been a fellow at the Aspen Music Festival and School, where he performed on NPR’s From the Top. He attended Boston University’s Tanglewood Institute, was principal double bass of the Seattle Youth Symphony, and was associate principal of the inaugural National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America on its tour of Washington, D.C., Moscow, St. Petersburg, and London.
As a jazz bassist, Langlie-Miletich was recognized in 2014 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington contest as an outstanding bassist. He's performed in the Montreux, Lyon, and Umbria jazz festivals.
Admitted to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia at age 16, Langlie-Miletich is the Milton Levy Fellow, and is in his third year of instruction with Harold Robinson and Edgar Meyer.
