Life is beautiful!
February 1, 2017

We have seen a lot of change since my last newsletter was published. A new year, new challenges, and the passing of dear friends.

March 17, I will be performing with Neno Belan and Olja Desic in Osijek to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Poduzetnik magazine.

April 22, I will be in Dubuque for a private performance at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival.

Cynthia, Nenad, Zoran, Ivo and Bob watching the silent film "The Kid Brother," by Harold Lloyd, accompanied by a live orchestra.

On April 28, I will be in Washington, D.C. to give a performance and discuss how to be a catalyst for world peace, for Hrvatska Ura. Croatian Hour is the organization of the Croatian community and professionals who live in Washington DC area. The performance will be held at 7 p.m. at the Embassy of Croatia. The series and organization started in May 2010 and continued without interruptions since. The list of events and speakers included a wide diversity of topics and speakers which include most prominent ambassadors, senators, journalists, scientists, doctors, artists, writers, musicians, spiritual leaders, attorneys, Croatian wines tastings, and others. for more information visit:
