In 2022, two academic musicians and long-time colleagues Senka Nedeljkovic, soprano and Aleksandar Uzelac, pianist, formed Duo SenSa with an idea to promote and perform classical music concerts with different repertoire and styles.

I think they are excellent team, each masterful at their task, on the way to the same goal, so we were rewarded with wonderful music.


Every genre is perfect. Wonderful as always. Voice, diction, stage performance, song selection. I hope we will have the opportunity to watch and listen to this beautiful music more often. When music is performed with this kind of emotion, there is no mistake. Congratulations!
