Faculty & Staff Spotlight: Jelena Janjic

Jelena Janjic playing pianoDr. Jelena Janjic, an associate professor of pharmaceutics, whose research includes creating nanomedicines to directly address pain, will deliver something entirely different this weekend–her first solo piano recital.

Janjic will perform at noon on Saturday, Sept. 25, in the PNC Recital Hall at the Mary Pappert School of Music. Limited seating will be available, and the recital also can be watched online via Zoom.

Janjic, a former chronic pain sufferer, found that music helped ease her pain. She has been playing and composing music for piano for more than three decades. Janjic will present a gamut of her favorite piano works by Chopin, Satie, Philip Glass, Max Richter and other contemporary minimalist composers. She will also share her own piano works, which are heartfelt, earnest stories of life experiences and journeys.
