American-Bulgarian pianist Beatrice Dalov has appeared in numerous recitals across Eastern Europe and the United States in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings, as part of both concert series and summer festivals. She currently serves as the full-time Concerts & Operations Manager for Washington National Cathedral and the Cathedral Choral Society in Washington, D.C.
Beatrice is concurrently pursuing work in the field of musicology, particularly in exploring the evolving nationalistic idiom within Australian “art” music. Her book, The Sounds of Aurora Australis: A History of Australia’s Musical Identity, is forthcoming in February of 2022 under Sussex Academic Press. For the 2021–2022 academic year, Beatrice was awarded Florida International University’s Office of Global Learning Student Fellowship for her forthcoming research project entitled “Franz Liszt, Donizetti Pasha, and the Ramifications of ‘Exoticism.’” She strives to unite research and performance within her work, and she therefore curates academically informed, multidisciplinary recitals that are both engaging and informative for a wide demographic. Beatrice will graduate summa cum laude in December of 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Sacred Music from Florida International University.
