A leading name in Serbian conducting, Bojan Suđić is chief conductor of the RTS Symphony Orchestra and Choir and executive and artistic director of the Musical Production of the RTS. He is also employed as a full professor and head of the conducting department at the Faculty of Music Art in Belgrade; in 2015, maestro Suđić celebrates 30 years of his professional career in conducting. Since the very beginning, his work and repertoire have featured an extraordinary breadth and diversity of choral, symphonic, and stage music, remarkable achievements in all of these domains, and numerous awards – ranging from First Prize at the 1989 Yugoslav Young Artists’ Competition in Zagreb to significant professional awards on the domestic music scene: the prize of the International Review of Composers, the annual prize of the Association of the Music Artists of Serbia, The City of Belgrade Prize, the Golden Armlet, the annual prize of the Musica classica journal, and others. He performs regularly in Serbia and abroad.
Since 1992, he has been a permanent conductor with the RTS Choir and Symphony Orchestra, with whom he has performed a large number of works from the international heritage of choral, symphonic, and vocal-instrumental music. Most of these concerts have been recorded for radio and TV, constituting the basis of Suđić’s extensive discography.
Since 1989, he has engaged in intense collaboration with the Belgrade Philharmonic. In 1993, he turned to conducting in opera, becoming a leading conductor at the National Theatre Opera in Belgrade, and its chief conductor during the season of 1999‒2000. He was general music director of the Opera during the season of 2004‒2005.
In 1998, he was engaged as a visiting conductor at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm, becoming a conductor in residence there in 2000. With their ensemble, he realised over 150 opera and ballet productions. He has also pursued a fruitful collaboration with the ensemble of the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki. As a visiting conductor, he has performed with over 40 orchestras in the region and abroad, such as the Helsinki Philharmonic, Novosibirsk Philharmonic, Turku Philharmonic, and UNAM Philharmonic.

The Symphony Orchestra of the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation (RTS) was founded seven decades ago, and it represents one of the pillars of music in Belgrade and Serbia.
The Symphony Orchestra, while focused on its main course of duty which is performing and recording music for the needs of RTS radio and TV programs, also continuously performs in public concerts in the country and abroad.
The individuality of the Orchestra activity is based on a careful repertoire policy with precise selection of programs. The two most vivid capacities of these programs are reflected primarily in performance of complex compositions of international orchestra literature, classical epoch and contemporary music, capital oratorios realized together with the RTS Choir, as well as in continuous performance of most important works of domestic musical heritage and of contemporary Serbian composers.
Symphony Orchestra of the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation was founded back in 1937, and its first conductors and founding fathers were Dr. Vojislav Vučković and Mihajlo Vukdragović.
Among the conductors who achieved great creations with this artistic ensemble performing the greatest and the most famous pieces of the music literature were: Igor Markevich, Zubin Mehta, Eleazar Karvayo, Efrem Kurtz, Charles Ditua, Friedrich Zaun, Lorin Maazel, Mstislav Rastropovitch, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Oscar Danon, Mikis Theodorakis, Alexander Apolin, Milen Nachev and others. Excellent cooperation was also realized with chief conductors of the Orchestra, among which are Mladen Jagušt, Vančo Čavdarski and Bojan Sudjić.
Prominent artists from all over the world performed as soloists with this Orchestra – Henrik Shering, Christian Feras, Kendal Taylor, Nikolai Orlov, Philippe Entremont, Aldo Chiccolini, Ivo Pogorelić, Eliso Virsaladze, Aleksandar Madžar, Nataša Veljković, Jasminka Stančul, Montserrat Caballé, Zinka Kunc, Galina Vishnevskaya, Melanija Bugarinović, Biserka Cvejić, Ljiljana Molnar-Talajić, Ruza Pospiš-Baldani, Aleksandra Ivanović etc.
The Symphony Orchestra had very successful tours in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Greece, Romania and Morocco, and received very flattering reviews.
The Orchestra made a great number of studio recordings many of which were issued on LPs and CD by RTS Records Production.

CEBEF prepares and organizes film, music and multimedia ambient festivals with a tradition spanning over decades.
