Tarcísio Dantas

Born In Minas Gerais Brazil, Tarcísio began his music studies at the church of the “Christian Congregation In Brazil”. His development on the violin was initially made possible thanks to his teacher Davi Graton (São Paulo Symphony violin soloist). In 2007 while studying with Ana Ghitã (Romania) he was admitted to the Sergipe Symphony Orchestra, and in 2010 was appointed principal of the second violins. Meanwhile, Tarcísio took part in several master classes with soloists Daniel Guedes, Ronedilk Dantas, Emanuelle Baldini, Elisa Fukuda and Marcio Rodrigues.

In 2008 he began studying music teaching at the Federal University of Sergipe and was one of the creators of the university’s orchestra (Osufs). From 2009 to 2014 he coordinated string teaching at the Youth Orchestra of the Vale of Contiguiba (OSVC) social project, and since 2013 has held the same position at the Youth Orchestra of Aracaju. At the Sergipe Symphony, Tarcisio began a significant musical trajectory, as the soloist in several baroque concertos (including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, La Stravaganza), playing under the baton of important maestros (Isaac Karabtchevsky, Michel Legrand, Roberto Tibiriçá, Guilherme Mannis, Luiz Malheiro, Ion Bressan, Piotr Borkowski) and taking part in relevant orchestral tours and international music festivals.

Since 2014 Mr. Dantas has been guided by Mrs. Bogumila Burfin (Poland) in Lisboa. In addition to being principal second violinist of the Sergipe Symphony, he’s also concertmaster and assistant conductor at Osufs and a menber of the Bromley Symphony Orchestra in London.
