Natalie Anne Pereira
I am a writer, singer, teacher, arranger, and performer who is in passionate pursuit of her artistic voice. (Right now, I'm trying to strike the balance between professional, likable, hirable, eloquent, and real in this bio - fingers crossed?)
Currently, I am working as a teacher of theater and voice at the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts, as well as working as a director and music director for the youth Kaleidoscope program at the Summit Playhouse in Summit, NJ. I also spent 18 months working as the music librarian for the New Jersey Youth Symphony and its 15 ensembles.
Recently, in addition to my own writing, I am involved with the project Alone: A New Musical, including singing vocals on the cast album, having writing credit on the song "Tearing Down Walls," and performing with the project at 54 Below.
I graduated from Syracuse University in May 2021 with degrees in Music and English and Textual Studies, as well as with Voice Performance Honors and as a member of the Reneé Crown Honors Program. I am a classically trained vocalist and choir singer who now primarily sings theater and pop/singer-songwriter repertoire. In my time at Syracuse, I began work on book, lyrics, and score for an original musical, 1, 2, 3, 4. I gave both junior and senior recitals and was the music director and primary arranger for my SATB a cappella group Groovestand for three years.
Looking forward, I am excited to continue writing and exploring myself and my work. Looking back, I am wondering if I should have written this bio differently, or simply written it better (but I suppose it'll do for now). Looking inward, I am passionate (as always) about B Plot characters, quiet kids being heard, and the Oxford Comma.
