Natalia V.

Natalia was nine years old when she first heard a piece for solo flute performed in a grand church, making her sit up a little straighter. On her tenth birthday, her father gave her her very first flute (a Yamaha student model), and she has been living the history of that day ever since. The role of flute performance in Natalia's life has transformed from an extra-curricular activity at the age of ten to her most challenging, captivating, rewarding, and necessary undertaking thus far. Natalia won numerous awards, recognitions, and scholarships in solo festivals and youth orchestras in her hometown of Bakersfield, California before moving her life to Southern California in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in flute performance. In August of 2015, she began her studies at San Diego State University where she studied with Pamela Martchev. She graduated in May 2020 with a B.M. in Flute Performance and a B.A. in Philosophy. During her time at San Diego State University, Natalia served as principal flutist of the Symphony Orchestra for 4 seasons, principal flutist of the Wind Symphony for 2 seasons, the principal flutist of the Chamber Orchestra for 3 seasons. She has had the opportunity to play under notable conductors such as Maxim Eshkenazy. As a soloist, she has been recognized by the San Diego Flute Guild and participated in masterclasses for Carol Wincenc, Jim Walker, Denis Bouriakov, Benjamin Smolen, and Seth Morris. Natalia can be heard on various albums and projects outside of classical music and has a passion for playing in diverse performance disciplines. She is an active flute coach and private instructor for all ages and skill levels and plans to earn her Masters Degree from Mannes School of Music in 2023.
