Petar Vucelić, second oboe
Orchestra member since 2005
I take special pride in all these dear people around me, who support me and share every aspect of life with me, as well as in the fact that I have learned lessons from my defeats and used them as an incentive to pursue my goals.
I am an oboist, which means that I live in a viscious circle, somewhere between quantum physics, gymnastics and handicraft, holding a knife in my hand. Sometimes I myself wonder how I’m making it work. I don’t go to church on Sundays, but I go to the farmers’ market on Saturdays, the one in Zemun where I know the local greengrocers by name. I live to travel, enjoy music and find my peace of mind on the Danube riverbank.
Petar Vucelić studied the oboe at the Belgrade Faculty of Music. He has won several awards at national music competitions. While a student, he was a recipient of the scholarship granted by youth orchestras Bayreuth Jugend Orchester, Deutsch-Skandinavische Jugend-Philharmonie and Europa Jugend Philharmonie. He has attended master classes held by Hansjörg Schellenberger, David Walter and Matthias Bäcker. He completed Master studies at the University of Stavanger (Norway) in the class of Prof. Kjersti Dahle. During the studies in Stavanger, he was a casual member of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra.
Vucelić has been a full-time member of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra since 2005, as second oboist.
