Sanja Romić, principal
Orchestra member since March 2011
I take special pride in my wonderful oboe section! 🙂
I am constantly on the move, perhaps a bit unsettled, vivacious, emotional, fond of people, friends and smiles. I like travelling, changes and action, which keep me alive and lighthearted. I rejoice in music that imbues my being, the music that I live and breathe… embraced by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra! 🙂
Oboist Sanja Romić began her musical education with Žužana Egić in Novi Sad. She initially studied at the Novi Sad Academy of Arts, with Prof. Dienes and Prof. Puškaš, and later at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, with Peter Pongracz and Gabor Dienes, as a recipient of the Soros Foundation scholarship. She received further training at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg, in the class of Stefan Schilli, and attended masterclasses with Han de Vries, Laszlo Hadady, David Walter, Emanuel Abbühl and Gordon Hunt. Sanja is the laureate of several competitions in Serbia and Hungary.
Between 2005 and 2009, she worked as the solo oboist of the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet Theatre, while she also collaborated with the Slovenian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, Slovenian Army Orchestra, Festine Ensemble and the Society of Slovene Composers.
