A relaxing summer vacation with Mak Grgić

USC Thornton alumnus Mak Grgić (MM ’12, DMA ’16) is a very busy man. The Slovenian-born classical guitarist (recently profiled here) is artistic director of both the Zagreb Music Festival and the Biljke i Svirke Interactive Music Festival, director of the Elemental Guitar Program at Elemental Music, an adjunct faculty member at Mount Saint Mary’s University, one half of the Duo Deloro with Thornton faculty member Adam del Monte, and plays in FretX with Dan Lippel, in addition to his solo career.

Grgić averages some 85 gigs each year. And when he was recently pressed with a friendly, “How was your summer?,” in the Thornton break room, Grgić presented the following, dizzyingly-detailed breakdown of his summer schedule:

As if he weren’t busy enough, Grgić will also be launching several albums in the next year: MAKrotonal with MicroFest Records, Balkanisms on the Naxos Music Label, and a debut Duo Deloro album with Adam del Monte.

Stay tuned for more adventures from the road with Mak Grgić!
