About Tania Stavreva
Graduate of the National Music School "Dobrin Petkov" in Bulgaria as well as of the Boston Conservatory, where she was a full scholarship recipient and the winner of many competitions, pianist Tania Stavreva made her New York Recital Debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in April 2009, as part of the Artists International’s 36 Special Presentation Winners Series. Since then, she has performed at many prestigious venues including Lincoln Center, Kaufman Center, Symphony Space, Kosciusko Foundation Auditorium, Steinway Hall, Embassy of Bulgaria in New York, Bohemian National Hall at the Czech Center of New York and the CSV Cultural Center where she was featured live on NY1 News by NBC reporter Asa Aarons.
In addition to her classical music career, Ms. Stavreva is also developing a great diversity of projects, such as her collaboration in 2009 with The Dresden Dolls, making her one of the first pianists of her generation to perform modern classical music at such rock club venues as Webster Hall (New York) and Paradise Rock Club (Boston). In July 2011, she also performed for the first time body painted, connecting the music of Erik Satie to the work by artist Danny Setiawan.
Ms. Stavreva is an active participant in many outreach programs and fundraising campaigns, supporting with her music institutions such as Dana Faber Cancer Institute, NYU Hospital, Los Angeles Children's Hospital, Centers for Alzheimer Care and many others.
