Aleksandra Bengin

Aleksandra Bengin (1992) was born in Vršac, Serbia. She completed her basic piano (class of Professor Aleksandra Pavlović) and cello (class of Professor Sandra Belić) studies in Belgrade at the Faculty of Music. She also completed her master's degree in cello with Professor Sandra Belić at FMU.

In 2016, she started working as a substitute cello professor at the Music school "Stevan Mokranjac" in Požarevac. Since 2017, she has been working as a professor of cello, accompanying piano, choir and orchestra at the Music school "Petar Stojanović" in Ub.

From the beginning of her studies until today, she has been actively performing as a member of various orchestras and chamber ensembles, among which the most important are the quartet "Vae soli" which won 1st prize at the 11th International String Festival Fest in Sremska Mitrovica (2013) and Belgrade string orchestra "Dusan Skovran". Aleksandra is dedicated to performing classical music, but also to performing works by contemporary and domestic authors. She performed as part of the KoMA festival in 2012 and 2013, performing works by young authors. She participated in the performance of Messian's "Quartet for the End of Time" in the hall of the Belgrade Philharmonic and in the gallery "Parobrod" in 2017. In the period from 2017 to 2019, she often performed at the concerts of pianist Dalida Grmuša in Belgrade and throughout Serbia. As an interesting project in which she participated, the performances with the ensemble "Nebograd" stand out, where within the project "New composers - new lyrics" literature was combined with music. She is currently a member of the ensemble "BLISS".

During 2019, she performed notable concerts with this ensemble in Belgrade at the Artget Gallery and at the chamber music festival "Bliss" in Gornji Milanovac.

She studied at the master classes of Leonid Gorokhov, Natalija Gutman, Denis Shapovalov, Evgeni Rumyantsev, Maja Bogdanović, Valentina Raducia and Vashti Hunter.
