is a gifted flutist from Novi Sad. She studied at the Belgrade
Faculty of Music and after at the Berklee College of Music. In Boston she graduated
at the Performers Department in 2013. with a special recognition: Performance
Division Dean's Award in Recognition of Outstanding Musicianship.
Although she has a classical education, the time spent in USA has helped her
sensibility and expression to evolve in new directions – towards improvisation
and creating her own music. In 2013. she founds the ensemble Milena Jančurić Trio.
She also played in many orchestras, chamber ensembles, ad hoc bands and groups
like Lazar Novkov & Frame Orchestra, Sanja Marković Ascension Project, Aleksandar
Dujin Orchestra, Women of the World, Tomoko Ozawa Quintet and many more. Since
2016 she she is engaged on the project “Internal Compass” in Jerusalem, were she
gives masterclasses and plays her original music all around Israel.
One of the things that makes Milena’s performance everything but typical is her
gentle and trembling sound and the distinctive feeling for leading melody in
various directions. She corresponds to other instruments with such ease and
has the on-going joy of making music. Listening to her is like talking a walk
on a beautiful day. Go straight to that sunny trek by following her
Purple shoes steps.
