Tania Stavreva, Concert Pianist - Modeling Biography
Described by the music critics as “exceptional, entrancing, fun!” (Harry Rolnick, ConcertoNet.com), "a fully formed and fearsomely talented pianist" (Steve Holtje, CultureCatch.com) and "bold, dynamic, magnificent!" (Harris Goldsmith), the "Bulgarian-born piano dynamo” (Steve Smith, Time Out New York) and fine art model Tania Stavreva made her Carnegie Hall debut in April 2009.
As a model and artist she has collaborated with over 100 multi-award winning photographers among which are Jack Dzamba (Icron Image International), David Mathews (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA), Remy Dubois (FACIL-Art, Art Institute of Boston), Stephen Cicco (Beauty & Glamor Class, the New England School of Photography), Bob Stegmaier (Image Keepers, Inc.), Ron Ranere ("Positive Image, Inc.) and Will Calhoun (Living Color, B.B.King, The Rolling Stones) who also appeared as a guest artist on Tania's debut piano album "Rhythmic Movement" coming up in early 2013.
Tania Stavreva's modeling experience includes also numerous appearance as a costume and portrait model at NYC's Museum of Art & Design, National Arts Club, Educational Alliance, Fabrizio Art Studios for Painting & Sculpture, Salmagundi Club, The 3rd Ward, Jewish Community Center and Society of Illustrators where she also collaborated with renowned comic book artist, editor and publisher Daxiong (Guo Jingxiong). During 2004-2008 she modeled also at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, Kaji Aso Studio & Art Gallery, and Brookline Adult Education Center.
In July 2011 her multimedia performance “Rhythmic Movement” took place at the Metropolitan Room in NYC where for a first time she performed body painted, connecting the music of Erik Satie to the work by artist Danny Setiawan. “Rhythmic Movement” was immediately featured on NY1 News as well as Time Out New York and New York Daily News. On May 10th, 2012 Ms. Stavreva collaborated with the internationally-acclaimed body painter and artist Derrick Little at Galapagos Art Space in New York on another multimedia project titled “Rhythmic Movement Multimedia”. This time live music and live body painting were connected through abstract music-color synesthesia. The young pianist and fine art model also made her acting debut with the Onomatopoeia Theater Company as Sasia in The Tempest by William Shakespeare - an off-off Broadway modern adaptation.
In August 2008 she was invited to participate at Maria Santana's Summer Swim Suit Collection Fashion Show at The Matrix in Boston, MA. In 2003, “InfoWorld” National Magazine named Tania the winner of the 2003 National Beauty Contest (Bulgaria). She holds a Bachelor's of Music Degree in Piano Performance from the Boston Conservatory and Artist-Instrumentalist Diploma from National Music School "Dobrin Petkov" (Plovdiv, Bulgaria).
