Ana Vidović na 3. Epidaurus festivalu
Ovogodišnja edicija Epidaurus festivala dovesti će u pleter svojih prekrasnih ambijenata hrvatsku proslavljenu gitaristicu Anu Vidović. Biti će to povratak jedne od najmlađih svjetskih gitarističkih virtuoza u Dubrovački kraj nakon punih deset godina kad je zadnji put nastupila na Dubrovačkim ljetnim igrama (1999.), a ujedno i prvi njen nastup u najjužnijoj općini Hrvatske.
Rođena je u Karlovcu 1980. Gitaru je počela svirati u petoj godini inspirirana svirkom svog brata Viktora Vidovića čiji je talent izmamio ovacije na prošlogodišnjem Epiduarus festivalu (2008.). Već u 11. godini nastupa u internacionalnim razmjerima, a s 13 upisuje Glazbenu akademiju u Zagrebu kao najmlađi student te institucije.
Studira u klasi Ištvana Romera u Zagrebu, te Manuel Barrueca na Peabody Konzervatoriju u Baltimoru (SAD). Pobjednica je zavidnog broja internacionalnih nagrada diljem svijeta, a ističu se: (Italija), Fernando SorFrancisco Tárrega (Španjolska), Mauro Giuliani (Italija), Printemps de la Guitare u Belgiji, te Young Concert Artists International Auditions u New Yorku. Vidović za sobom broji već preko tisuću koncerata u najprestižnijim dvorana svijeta, te na poznatim gitarističkim i drugim festivalima u Rimu, Beču, Parizu, Londonu, Salzburgu, Varšavi, Tel Avivu, Oslu, Kopenhagenu, Budimpešti, San Franciscu itd.
Njen izvanredni talent i fascinantne glazbene sposobnosti doveli su je u sam vrh glazbene elite današnjice.
