Nathalie has appeared as a concert soloist in Mahler 4th Symphony with the Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest and in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Chicago Choral Artists. An avid recitalist, Nathalie studied art song with German baritone Udo Reinemann and regularly performs such repertoire at venues including Chicago’s Pianoforte Foundation and Driehaus Museum. A graduate of DePaul University and the Brussels Royal Conservatory, she completed her opera training at the Swiss Opera Studio in Bern. Nathalie was born and raised in Strasbourg, France.
