Learn more about Marko Petričić.

Marko Petričić holds D.Mus and M.M. degrees from Indiana University where he studied with Dr. Christopher Young. He is a newly appointed Assistant Teaching Professor of Organ/Generalist at Ball State University. Prior to this appointment, he taught at the Univesity of Indianapolis. As an active church musician, he is Music Associate/Organist at Northminster Presbyterian Church and was previously Assistant Organist and Choirmaster at Christ Church Cathedral and Choir Director/Organist at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Indianapolis. He has presented recitals and master classes at Shanghai Normal University in China, University of Toronto, Canada, and University of Belgrade, Serbia. As an accomplished organ and bayan-accordion performer, Marko Petričić has won top prizes at International and National competitions in Italy, Germany, Yugoslavia, and the United States. He was a member of the jury for the Fort Wayne National Organ Competition twice, and his CD recordings French Accent (organ), and The Years of Pilgrimage (bayan), have received excellent reviews.

As an accomplished keyboard performer, he has performed with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra on numerous occasions featuring a wide range of repertoire.

His newest CD recording of J. S. Bach’s Clavierübung III on organ and bayan featuring the Northminster’s C. B. Fisk Op. 154 pipe organ was recently released on the MSR Classics label.

The bayan is an instrument that has a similar operating principle and design to the accordion. The most notable difference is in the design of the right-hand keyboard; instead of the piano-like keys of the accordion, the bayan has five rows of buttons. It was invented in Russia in 1870, and during the last fifty years a great body of literature has been composed for this instrument worldwide. Consequently, the increased quality and quantity of music has led to a number of excellent performers that have elevated the status of the accordion from a purely folk instrument to a legitimate concert instrument.


Program to include music by Bach, Repnikov, Conte, and more.
