Saturday, January 25, 2014 – Mak Grgic – Slovenian Classical Guitarist
Mr Grgic recently won first prize at the Guitar Competition “Luigi Mozzani” in Italy, and the “Pacific Guitar Festival and Competition 2011” in California. He is hailed by the Washington Post as “a lyrical insightful player” … as playing with “beauty and intelligence” and calling his interpretations “nuanced and introspective.” As a new Young Artist in Residene at Da Camera Society of Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, he appears with JACK Quartet in the premiere of a new work by composer and member of the Philip Glass Ensemble, David Crowell. Born in 1987 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Mak follows in a distinguished line of some of today’s finest young guitarists emerging from the Croatian school of guitar, studying with the revered Ante Cagalj in Zagreb, and subsequently obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree with Alvaro Pierri at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, Austria. Currently, Mak is pursuing a Master’s Degree at the USC Thornton School of Music as a student of William Kanengiser of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. He is also a newly appointed Teacher’s Assistant at the Thornton School of Music.
