Petar Miso Mihocevic
Petar Miso Mihocevic (1949), BA in Letters and Philosophy from the Zagreb University (Political Sciences never completed), from a family of musicians and professors. Scholarships to USA, Italy and Great Britain.
In theatre and music since early childhood, first 'position' of an errand boy at the Press Office of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival when only 14 ( after being forced to interrupt a promising career in swimming for skin infection on the eve of federal championships); subsequently spent each summer with the Festival,
progressing from an assistant to the General Secretary to the host and interpreter in charge of international artists. After his BA, he was scouted by chance and was invited to become a fashion model in Rome, where he was soon engaged by a famous family of designers as personal secretary to the companyâ€™s
owner. Followed an international 'career' in fashion and films (he never took seriously either of the two). After many years he was engaged by the Dubrovnik Summer Festival as its PR Manager, then as Principal Producer (1986-1991) in which period he re-established the Festival's fame by engagements of
worldâ€™s foremost artists and theatres of the time (Caballe', Ughi, Wiener SÃ¤ngerknaben, Dresden Symphony, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Royal National Theatre with Daniel Day-Lewis as Hamlet, Moscow Philharmonic, etc). When in 1991 the Serbian-Montenegrin Army attacked the area of
Dubrovnik, he volunteered to the National Guards (later Croatian Army; was its Senior Liaison Officer with international missions â€“ UN forces, EUMM, UNICEF, UNESCO, Red Cross - and the opposite army; in late 1999 demobilized upon personal request in the rank of colonel), was the first local negotiator with the aggressing forces on the occupied territories, has hosted all the most prominent personalities visiting Dubrovnik, including HRH Prince of Wales, Turkish President Demirel, HRH Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the members of the Royal family of Habsburg, all ambassadors to the new country, foreign ministers of defense ( USA, Germany, Great Britain). Thereupon he again joined the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, where he was appointed General Manager. He stepped down out of his own will in late 2001, whereupon he founded his own event and concert management agency AGEVENT. The agency soon came to fame internationally, both in events (catering to clients such as Microsoft, Esteeâ€™ Lauder, Falck, Medipharm, CEO, YPO, to Ministries of Foreign Affairs and of Culture of Croatia etc.), and, especially as the organizer of the Festival of Chamber Music â€˜Julian Rachlin & Friendsâ€™, considered by many expert critics the best festival of its kind ever. (More on all at: www.agevent.biz ).During the same time, in summer 2004 he was asked by the Lady Mayor of Dubrovnik to take over the City Theatre which was undergoing a serious crisis
(wrong repertoire, no audience). In less than one complete season, all evenings of the totally new repertoire at the theatre have become a sell out.Interests include reading, music (an amateur singer, started as a small boy, later a leading vocal in a band, singer in several choirs, among which he was a co-founder of the Dubrovnik-based â€˜Libertasâ€™ Symphony Choir; has appeared in choruses in opera productions at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival; plays so much applauded role of a â€˜Presenterâ€™ in his own latest production of a musical in the Dubrovnik Theatre). On the list of essential needs is humor and goodwill.
