We can all agree that music can be powerful. For Natasa and Igor Karacas, music was what brought them together and gave their lives purpose, even during the hardships caused by the Bosnian War.
Natasa and Igor are professors in the music department at Oklahoma State. Natasa’s specialty is aural skills, but she also teaches music appreciation as well as classic piano. Igor teaches a variety of subjects, primarily music technology and music theory.
The Karacas are devoted to their craft. Music is what carried them from the war-torn streets of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, to Stillwater. Music has led the Karacas a great distance, but it has given them a gift: each other.
