Miroslav Pavlović, concertmaster
Orchestra member since 1997
I take special pride in the fact that, as the concertmaster of the best orchestra in Serbia, I have had opportunities to perform with some of today’s leading artists – Zubin Mehta, Maxim Vengerov and Julian Rachlin, to name but a few. I am proud of having won the City of Belgrade October Award.
I am a man who likes the first and second beer after a concert, fishing and taekwondo. I like playing with children and watching films. This is all I could think of.
