Music in Corrales, Corrales New Mexico, Petar Jankovic

A hidden treasure in Corrales, New Mexico is our Music in Corrales series. From September through April, the concerts are held in the Old San Ysidro Church- another Corrales "treasure"- usually on Saturday evening at 7:30. We have heard from various performers how much they enjoy playing in the intimate venue of the Old Church with the wonderful acoustics.

On Saturday, February 19 at 7:30 Petar Jankovic will fill the Old Church with the sweet sounds of classical guitar. Petar is a native of Serbia, and will be performing his interpretations of Spanish and Latin-American composers. Described as "an artist who masterfully translates music into emotion," audiences find themselves moved by the connection they feel to this musician. Beginning his studies at age eight, Petar has garnered numerous prestigious awards at major competitions around the world. In the intimate setting of the Old Church you will undoubtedly have an unforgettable evening with an artist having "a character to his playing that is reminiscent of artists like Segovia or Bream."

This performance includes composers Villa-Lobos, Albeniz, and Piazzolla. Classical Spanish guitar at its finest is played with verve and clarity. Jankovic’s 25-year concert career touches his audience through sensitivity and passion, sharing the composer’s goal of reaching the listener’s soul. His commanding stage presence is equal parts energetic talent, skill, intelligence and personal charisma.
