University of California Santa Barbara - Campbell Hall

One of today’s most recognized classical guitarists, Miloš has invigorated the classical music world with his magnetic combination of incontestable musical sensitivity and populist approachability. His characteristic easygoing charm and technical prowess are epitomized in his groundbreaking project Bach to Beatles, as the Montenegro-born marvel blends the sounds of classical and popular music like never before. Touring with an ensemble that includes violin, viola, cello and bass, he moves seamlessly from a transcription of Bach’s mighty Chaconne through a detour including “The Girl from Ipanema” and culminating in newly-commissioned arrangements of Beatles favorites.
