Dr. Jennifer Dalmas joined SFA's School of Music faculty in 2003. Since then, the strings program has grown considerably, developing into an even more vital component of the School of Music.

A graduate of the Virginia School of the Arts, Dalmas holds both master's and doctoral degrees in violin performance from Florida State University, where she studied with professors Karen Clarke, Eliot Chapo and Dr. Gary Kosloski. After earning her Doctor of Music degree, she served as a visiting violin instructor at Florida State University.

While living in Florida, she regularly performed with the Tallahassee, Jacksonville and New World symphonies. Dalmas also has played with several period orchestras, including the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra and the Apollo Ensemble.

She has performed various concerti with orchestras in the United States and Europe, and has given recitals and master classes both in the United States and Central America as part of the Promising Artists of the 21st Century program.

In 2015, she also toured in Asia with a faculty piano trio from SFA, visiting universities in both Hong Kong and Macau to give masterclasses and performances. In July 2015, she served as string faculty for the Interharmony International Music Festival in Arcidosso, Italy, and recently performed for the festival's chamber music series at Carnegie Hall.

In Texas, Dalmas has been an active orchestral musician and is currently the concertmaster for the Longview Symphony. An avid chamber music player, she has been a member of both the Alazan Piano Trio and East Texas Baroque, and performs with her cellist husband Evgeni Raychev in the Hachidori Duo. She is active as an adjudicator and clinician, and has presented at the national American String Teachers Association convention. Dalmas also has recorded for Centaur Records.

Her string students have won numerous awards and competitions, and have enjoyed summer studies at prestigious music festivals such as Brevard, Eastern and Meadowmount.
