                                                              Church her entire life. Growing

                                                              up with the youth choirs of St. John

                                                              Cantius, she took an interest in the restor-

                                                              ation of sacred music at a young age. She's

                                                              been a member of their St. Cecilia, Cantate

                                                              Domino, and Resurrection Choirs, and a long

                                                              of the Magnificat Choir where she would help in the organization of events, the selection of music, and in leading sectionals and sometimes rehearsals. Nathalie was also involved with the Crusaders for Life and the youth programs at Saint John Cantius Church. 

 

Taking her interest in sacred music outside of the parish, Nathalie is the first to graduate

with a degree in sacred music from Loyola University. While attending Loyola, she took

classes in music theory, composition, conducting, vocal pedagogy, studied voice

under Kirsten Hedegaard and Klaus Georg,

and studied the organ under Steven Betancourt.

She was an active member in the choirs at

Loyola, especially with their Schola Cantorum. 

 

Since graduating, Nathalie had an internship

at Queen of Angels Catholic Church as an

assistant director of the children's choir and as

a music teacher, and became the director of

the children's choir at St.Stanislaus Kostka

Church. With her spare time, Nathalie enjoys

   composing her own music and has had her

      pieces performed at Loyola University,

        Saint John Cantius Church, and St. Peter's

                   Catholic Church in Volo, Illinois.

                             

                                       Nathalie will be assisting with the development of youth and 

                                       adult choirs at St. Katharine Drexel Parish.  To inquire about
