Natalia Kharetskaya

Hello,
My name is Natalia Kharetskaya, I am a vocalist and a composer born and raised in Lithuania and currently living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

I studied Jazz Vocal in Klaipeda University Art faculty in Lithuania and in 2015 moved to Rotterdam to study Jazz Composition at Codarts. I successfully graduated in 2019 and currently I am working in Rotterdam, composing and arranging for various ensembles and also performing as a session musician.

What I Do

Composer

As a composer I am continuously searching for my personal style in music, based on everything that I’ve learned before. Influences change every season: currently I am very inspired by folk music from Eastern Europe. My debut EP will be over this musical topic. I am further exploring the world of electronic music and synthesisers, discovering new instruments and perfecting my writing for conventional orchestral set up.

Arranger

Coming from a jazz and pop background I am skilled in arranging for various ensembles (bigbands, windbands, strings etc.) and during the past years I wrote many arrangements for ensembles such as OTRA (grammy-nominated Rotterdam based tango ensemble), CMH orchestra, Symfonisch Blaasorkest Crescendo and others.

Vocalist

I have performed on many stages in different countries with jazz ensembles and also on various TV projects in Lithuania, as a leading vocalist and session musician on major commercial events in Europe such as The Voice, Eurovision, Tomorrowland and ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). I am currently working on my debut EP, where I will mainly feature as a vocalist.

Educator

My career as an educator started in 2012 and since then I have coached a variety of musical talent. I was also a vocal coach of a famous Lithuanian pop group “Mango” during their comeback to the big stage in 2015. Currently I am conducting music lessons and creative workshops.
