Further on, she continued her bachelor studies with Mateja Bajt at the Academy of Music’s Department of Early Music in Ljubljana.

On numerous occasions, Marjana performed as a solo recorder with an orchestra. The performances included Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 with The Conservatory of Music and Ballet’s chamber orchestra, Bach’s La Pastorella with Orchestra Amadeo, Lebič’s Ajdna with Academic Choir Tone Tomšič, Monteverdi’s Vesprae with a baroque orchestra of the Academy of Music, and Monteverdi’s madrigali with the Slovenian Philharmonic Choir.

As a part of various early music ensembles, Marjana has performed at numerous concerts and music festivals. In 2018, she presented Slovenian early folk music at different music festivals across Slovenia with Makalonca, an early music ensemble. In addition, she has held three recitals at the Ljubljana’s Opera House – with the ensemble “La Dolce Fiamma” in 2015, as a solo performer accompanied by Alberto Busettini at the harpsichord in 2016, and as a duo with Una Košir, accompanied by Eva Dolinšek at the harpsichord. The duo Jocif–Košir also held a concert arranged by Studio 8.

During her studies, Marjana entered at TEMSIG, the Slovenian Youth Music Competition, both as a solo performer and as a part of an ensemble. There she received several first prizes and special awards. In 2015 she won the golden prize as a part of a recorder quintet “La Dolce Fiamma”. In addition, in 2019 Marjana received the competition’s first and special award for an outstanding interpretation of a piece by a Slovenian composer. After the competition in 2019, she was awarded the EMCY Prize and the opportunity to carry out two solo concerts arranged by Festival Ljubljana and Imago Slovenia.
