Petar Jankovic, international award-winning classical guitarist and faculty member at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, joins forces with a string quartet comprised of brilliant international musicians from Chicago area. This collaboration creates a very unique and attractive classical crossover – chamber ensemble: string quartet led by guitar.
