Petar Marič, Serbian Accordion Virtuoso

    Sunday, September 11 in Wilkes-Barre, PA

 

Petar Marič is a fine, handsome, young man from Belgrade, Serbia. Petar Marič was first introduced to the accordion at the age of five. In addition to classical music and eclectic variété compositions, Petar is a pioneer in the performance of electronic accordion music. He is a player and official promoter of the Scandalli-Extreme, Hohner-Fun Flash, and Roland-Fr7xb accordions.

His renditions of classical, folk, and other types of music fascinated the audience. Most of the audience had never heard the accordion played this way. The musical afternoon was delightful; a reception followed.

 

Petar’s visit to Northeastern Pennsylvania is made possible by World Artists Experiences, Washington, DC and the cooperative efforts of the First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association; First Presbyterian Church, Wilkes-Barre; Good Shepherd Academy, Kingston; Polish Union USA/Ameripol; Slovak Heritage Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania; St. George’s Orthodox Church, Taylor; St. Stanislaus Polish National Catholic Elementary School, Scranton; St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church, Wilkes-Barre; and the Wilkes University Polish Room.
