Local accordionist Amir Salesevic recently spoke with Classic 107.3 host Kathy Lawton Brown ahead of the premiere of the station’s new Musical Ancestries™ episode about Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Kathy says, “Amir shares some wonderful insights about the St. Louis Bosnian community and is excited about our new program. It was a true pleasure to talk with him and hear about his life experiences, which include performing with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in the 2014 “Bosnian Journeys: Generations” concert, which featured a multi-media look at the heritage of the Bosnian population in St. Louis – from before the war to the present day.”

The concert was produced in collaboration with the Bosnia Memory Project at Fontbonne University and the International Institute.
