About Natalka

Natalka is a soprano singing teacher and performer who works both locally and in greater London.
Singer (Soprano)
Barnet

Natalka is a first year Music student at King’s College London, training with a member of the Royal Academy of Music for her Performance module. Past performances include the Royal Albert Hall and performing with the BBC Choir at Middlesex University as a member of the Barnet One Voice Choir, the Spirit of Ukraine Festival at Forty Hall, Enfield, and the Ukrainian community centre in Holland Park. She was also involved in King’s College Opera Society’s production of Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel in the Bush House, as the understudy for Hänsel and a chorus member. A duet from Bach's Cantata BWV 80 (Wie selig sind doch die), performed at St John the Evangelist Church, Friern Barnet, led to two interviews with the Ukrainian department in the BBC World Service last year. In one of these, she was interviewed alone about her A level composition, which was about the tragedy of war (inspired by the current war in Eastern Ukraine). The second interview was with her father and sister about their release of her father's English adaptation of the original meaning of Carol of the Bells - Sing Swallow Sing.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to accommodate for my clients' changes of plan - if timings change slightly in the run up to events just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

No

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually not too long if the venue has a piano, however this may vary otherwise - in other cases, I like to get to venues an hour early if they do not have acoustic pianos.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course, pieces can be requested in advance before the event, so that they can be performed to a great standard!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Usually not all equipment as venues should often have a piano (However as a classical singer I often go without a mic)

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Of course!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My characterisation; as I have played roles in numerous operas and scenes, I have had much practice at acting and therefore like to engage with the audience, to make them feel a part of the story.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Royal Albert Hall, Enfield's Forty Hall, East Barnet School, Middlesex University, King's College London Chapel, The Greenwood Theatre on Guy's Campus, The Arts Depot in Finchley, Chickenshed, Ukrainian Cultural Center in Holland Park, Bush House.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Maria Callas, Joyce DiDonato

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I cannot give one - I value performances not just on the venue and location, but on how I feel I have performed for the audience. While it may be expected to say my Holland Park performances or the Royal Albert Hall, I receive great pleasure from all sorts of events, small and large.

Natalka’’s entire repertoire was very moving, and the song ‘Tears of Hope’ was particularly powerful and she captivated the entire audience. Her vocal control was exceptionally sustained among disjunct melodic leaps, changeable dynamics, and trills throughout the song. She embodied the quietness and soft timbres of the verse, and beautifully prepared the dramatic climax towards the end.The clarity of her tone was exceptional throughout, particularly in the higher registers which were so well controlled and sustained. It was an extremely special performance as she created an intimate atmosphere in communicating the story of the songs. Natalka’s voice is truly unique, and can touch the heart of any listener.

I Wonder as I Wonder: The first feature in this concert was an American song, originally composed by John Jacob Niles composed somewhere between 1918 and 1933, of which Berio rearranged in 1963 for a small orchestra and solo singer (originally Cathy Berbarian). The song is heavily inspired by the theme of thought and ponderance and is often described and used as a Christmas carol due to its religious inspiration. The lyrics are made even more potent by their evident inspiration from Niles’ experiences of longing for home and peace during the latter half of the First World War, of which Niles participated. Natalka captures this seamlessly with a real sense of lyricism in her soft yet distinctive tone. Particularly notable was her broad and profound higher register which clearly carries the weight of a well-developed and experienced operatic soprano’s voice. Yet, this did not overpower the sense of phrasing but, instead, added an increasingly emphatic and wishful sense of feeling and emotion to each line. Her handling of the profoundly legato nature of this piece was distinctly reflective of Nile’s own emotions and feeling when thinking of home during such a solemn period of our world history. Her tone also clearly adopted a more relaxed and lighter timbre which reflected both the more reflective nature of the piece itself, but also the culture of which Niles was a part of back in the United States in the early part of the twentieth century.
