ABOUT GUEST ARTISTS
Darka and Tanja Miric (Duo Mirić) are twin sisters from Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. They began their classical guitar training at the age of eight with Professor Ljubinko Jovic who encouraged them to play as a duo. As a duo, they received several first prizes at the Federal competition in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Darka's and Tanja's musical and academic achievements in their home country were brought to the attention of Dr. John Ingwerson by Dr. Miroslav Lončar. Dr. Ingwerson sponsored the sisters to begin their studies in the U.S. with him at Hinds Community College and Mississippi College in Mississippi with full scholarships. Among their undergraduate musical achievements were first place awards at the MMTA, MFMC and Mississippi Guitar Festival competitions. Beyond Mississippi, they won the college duo and overall college division at the University of Texas at Brownsville Ensemble Festival, 2006. Upon completion of their undergraduate studies, the sisters were awarded full scholarships and teaching assistantships to study with Mr. Robert Guthrie at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, where they received their MM degrees.
Duo Mirić has performed in master classes for a number of well-known ensembles including SoloDuo, Macccari-Pugliese, Paris Duo, Quartenaglia and Canadian Guitar Quartet, among others.
