Washington: Concert „This is Serbia“

11. Jan 2023.
In organisation of the Embassy of Serbia in Washington, concert „This is Serbia“ was held at the Millennium Stage of the prestigious Kennedy Centre.

Deputy Chief of Mission Andon Sapundzi addressed the audience, pointing out that it was a rare opportunity for visitors to listen to three very talented female artists performing songs by Serbian composers. Milica Sekulić (piano), Biljana Soldo (soprano) and Nataša Rašić (mezzo-soprano), made an effort to introduce some of the most beautiful Serbian songs to the audience.

The repertoire included the songs of Davorin Jenko - composer of the Serbian national anthem, and Kornelije Stanković, thanks to whom modern melodies were reconciled with the traditional ones, Slavenski, Milojević, Marinković and Bajić - representatives of late Serbian romanticism, as well as our contemporaries Hristić, Le Roux Obradović and Golemović.

Milica Sekulić gives concerts and teaches piano in Potomac, Maryland, Biljana Soldo performs at the Virginia Opera, while Nataša Rašić performs in theatres in Belgrade and abroad.
