An enthusiast of diverse world arts, Mehinovic has organized concerts of Korean, Hindustani, Uyghur, and Chinese musics in Boston. He participated in the Pacific Rim Music Festival 2010, which took place in multiple international locations and featured over thirty new compositions for Korean and Western instruments.
