Goran Ivanovic
Saturday, June 01, 2019

The Highland Park Public Library is proud to present Croatian born Guitarist Goran Ivanovic as part of our Note for Note music series. Goran and his group incorporate Balkan sounds and European classical music with jazz and flamenco. He will be joined by Mike Harmon on bass and Pete Tashjian on drums.

One of the most versatile, skilled, and curious musicians in Chicago, guitarist Goran Ivanovic has built a career built upon exploration. Born and raised in Croatia, he was in the midst of studying at the prestigious Mozarteum University in Salzburg, Austria with masters like Elliot Fisk and Joaquin Clerch when his parents (his father is a Serb, his mother a Bosnian Croat) were expelled in the late 90s; the family was granted asylum in the US and they settled in Chicago. Since his arrival he’s displayed a deep interest in collaboration, steadily expanding his stylistic range well beyond the European classical music and Balkan sounds he was fluently versed in when he arrived. These days his repertoire not only incorporates those disciplines, but jazz and flamenco as well.

The concert will take place in the Auditorium on Saturday, June 1, at 2 p.m.

The Note for Note music series is partially funded by the Highland Park Cultural Arts Commission and a grant from YEA! Highland Park.
