Sava Đurić, principal

Orchestra member since 2003


I take special pride in all the people who taught me to play the bassoon… in numerous first prizes at regional and national competitions, as well as in the first prize won at the competition in Stresa, Italy. I am also proud of the cooperation with all major orchestras in the country and the region, especially of my work in the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra.


I am a father and a son, a husband, a table tennis player, a swimmer, a footballer, a basketball player, a 43-Man Squamish player, a cyclist…
