Beatrice Miniaci was born in Gavardo, Italy in the summer of 1998. She studied since a young age at the conservatory of Brescia under the guidance of Mauro Scappini, followed by seasonal master-classes with Marco Zoni, first chair at “Teatro La scala”. During those years she was prize-winner at the National Competition of musical performance “Città di Piove di Sacco” (2017), at the International Competition City of Treviso (2016), and at the International Competition “Jan Langosz” (2015).
After graduation, she continues her studies at Conservatorium Van Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in the class of Marieke Schneemann, where she developed a particular interest in chamber music and orchestral performances.
She played as a member of “Uva-Orkest L.Pnz Sweelinck”, during the academic years 2017 and 2018, performing in important venues, as Het Concertgebouw or NedPho. Beatrice attended several masterclasses which enriched her playing, to name some: Felix Renggli, Renate Greiss, Robert Dick and Andrea Oliva.
During summertime, Beatrice enjoys attending inspiring masterclasses. In 2016 she took part in “Salso Summer Class& Festival, Salsomaggiore”, and performed the first movement W. A. Mozart K313 with Musici di Parma Orchestra.
During this past summer, she won the “Antonín Reicha Award for wind instrument players” during the International Summer Academy of the University of Music and Performic Arts of Vienna. The duo Bogaert-Miniaci was born last year at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam because of the love for chamber music practice.
