Dacic made his American debut in 2003 at the Discovery Series of the Sixth Miami International Piano Festival. That same year, he performed at the Martha Argerich Project Festival in Lugano. Mr. Sun has been heard in recital throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Recent appearances include concert tours in Brazil, Colombia, the U.S., and China, and concerto engagements with the National Spanish Orchestra, the Macau Orchestra, the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and the Boca Raton Philharmonic Symphonia.
