Milica Zulus Dimic

Member of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra since 2023.


Born in 1999 in Vienna, to an economist father and a pianist mother, Milica Zulus Dimic started her music education at the age of six when, instead of going to elementary music school, she was admitted  directly into the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna for violin lessons within a class for music talents, under the guidance of Professor Marina Sorokowa. She continued her preparatory studies with Professor Leonid Sorokow. 


In 2015, she became the youngest full-time student at said university, studying under Professor Gerhard Schulz. After completing elementary school in Vienna, she enrolled in a music high school in Belgrade in 2013, where she graduated in 2018. Following her graduation with honors under Professor Schulz in 2019, she continued her studies under Professor Kolja Blacher at the Hans Eisler School of Music in Berlin, where she completed her second undergraduate degree in 2021 and her master’s degree (B.Mus. and M.Mus.) in 2023. In the same year, she enrolled in doctoral studies under the guidance of Professor Robert Lakatos at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade.


She was awarded the first prize at the Alfredo e Vanda Marcosig International Competition in Gorizia, Italy. She won six consecutive first prizes at the Prima la Musica competition in Austria, as well as the third prize at the Hindemith Competition in Berlin. In 2013 and 2016, she was the winner of the Musica Juventutis competition in Vienna. She also won the first prize at the Harmonium Online Plus International Competition in Armenia.


As a soloist, she has performed under the baton of conductors Aleksandar Pavlovic, Juan Pablo Simón, Ljubiša Jovanovic, Bojan Sudjic, Predrag Gosta, Jack Martin Händler, and Cornelius Meister.


She has performed as soloist at several renowned venues – the Stanislavsky Theatre in Moscow, the Primate’s Palace in Bratislava, the Glazbeni Zavod Croatian Music Institute in Zagreb, and the Teatro Malibran in Venice. She has held numerous concerts in the Kolarac Grand Concert Hall in Belgrade and the Konzerthaus in Vienna.


She has been dedicated more to building her recital career lately, mainly focusing on works of composers from the German Romanticism (particularly the opus of Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms).


She plays on an instrument custom-made for her by Austrian violin luthier Wiltrud Fauler. The bow she performs with is a copy of a late model by François Tourte, made by German bow maker Thomas Gerbet.
