Zoran Dukić is a superstar in the classical guitar world today. Between 1990-1997, he won more competitions than any other guitarist. Zoran Dukić was born and grew up in Zagreb, Croatia, where he somewhat by chance took up the guitar and found that he had a gift for it. On the international competition circuit in the 1990s, he demonstrated an astounding mastery in a wide variety of musical periods and styles and won the competitions dedicated to “Fernando Sor,” “Manuel Ponce,” “Manuel de Falla,” and “Francisco Tárrega,” among several others. Please join us on March 2 for this unmatched musical experience.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a colorful and upbeat mix of Spanish and South American music with some Russian and Greek influence.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. This performance is part of the museum’s program “First Friday with Live Music”.
