About the Event

Ksenija Komljenović, a Serbian percussionist, educator, and composer, earned acclaim as a prizewinner of the International Percussion Competition Luxembourg. She is the first Serbian woman with a Doctor of Musical Arts in Percussion Degree. Ksenija serves as a faculty member at the renowned University of North Carolina School of the Arts, following four years of teaching at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.   Ksenija's dedication to contemporary and chamber music, alongside intercultural collaborations, is evident in her ensembles Vesna Duo and PNEUMA, bringing together exceptional performers from five countries. Her bold arrangements of classical, contemporary, jazz, and folk music enrich the repertoire and bring a unique flair to their performances. Ksenija's marimba and piano arrangement of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, featured on Vesna Duo's debut album, was described as "impressively reconfigured" and "smashingly effective" by The Wall Street Journal.   Ksenija initiated cultural-exchange projects between the U.S. and Serbia, including the first drumline camp and contemporary percussion workshop in her home country. Her international presence includes hundreds of performances and over 50 masterclasses in Hong Kong, England, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the United States, and Serbia. As a composer, she draws inspiration from her Slavic and Balkan roots, as seen in her works Slavdom for Wind Band and Epilog [Epilogue].   Ksenija holds degrees from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, Illinois State University, and the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, Serbia. She is a Marimba One Artist. To learn more, visit
