Natalie Ann Kasievich is a lifelong musician, beginning Suzuki violin studies at the age of 4. She joined her first orchestra (TRYPO’s Symphonette) at the age of nine and continues to play orchestral music with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. She can also be seen (and heard) playing on special occasions with the Worship Team at Christ Church at Grove Farm, among other freelancing: weddings, musicals, other special events.
Ms. Kasievich currently works as the executive director of the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra (WSO), creating opportunities for area musicians and fostering a new generation of classical music lovers through the WSO’s Academy of Music. As a teacher, Ms. Kasievich most enjoys seeing the sparks of joy when a student makes a new discovery, whether mastering a skill or connecting to a piece of music. Ms. Kasievich believes in the power of arts education in developing creative, empathetic, disciplined, and thriving beings of all ages.
Natalie lives in Gibsonia with her three cats: Penelope, Spartacus (Sparty), and Asher. In addition to music, she enjoys coffee shops, the daily WSJ crossword puzzle, and anything outdoors.
