I'm a singer, pianist, violinist, violist, composer, and sound engineer living in the Kansas City area [Shawnee Mission]. I'm currently looking for various local gigs - weddings, parties, and other events for which one would need live music. I have been freelancing full-time as an all-around artist since 2013.
I have a Bachelor's in Music Composition from UMKC, though I am self-taught in many areas as well. My concentrations lie in both classical and non-classical styles - rock, Motown, pop, folk, jazz, and especially electronica among them - and I specialize in improvisation on several instruments. I also sing and play keys at the same time and can read music and chords.
Wow! Natalie was amazing! She was very professional, attentive, and accommodating to every need or concern I had. Her performance was spectacular! I would highly recommend her to anyone. A very talented individual.
Response from Felix Theo Wren:
Wow! Thank you so much for this kind review! It was truly a pleasure to perform for you. I'm glad Kaila had a wonderful birthday celebration. :)
We booked Natalya for a memorial concert for my Dad. She had, I think, less than 48 hours to learn and transpose 10 new songs for the piano and she nailed it. The performance was amazing, she was incredible professional and dedicated, and absolutely everyone loved it.
Response from Felix Theo Wren:
Wow!! Thank you so much for all the kind words! I am so glad that I could do this good thing for your family in honour of your dad - he sounds like he was a wonderful and talented person. It was truly an honour to work with you. Thank you again for your sweet review! :)

What to Expect
I'm highly-experienced with a variety of musical styles, both classical and non-classical. I'm available to sing, play piano, and/or play violin for your wedding, but I could just as easily go put on an electro-industrial gig the next night at a party.
If you'd like for me to sing and/or play piano or violin for an event and you'd like for me to learn a specific song or two, I can learn it quickly and easily by ear and have it ready for you. I can play piano and sing at the same time, and I'm able to adapt pretty much anything to a piano/vox setup.
If you're looking to hire an electronic-music act, then you're in luck as well, as I've established my own electro-industrial project, Black Tie Laceration. BTL features a mix of dark and light aesthetics, rounding out abrasive beats with psychedelic, evolving synth lines.
Additional Booking Notes
I can provide my own transportation, instruments, and equipment if needed. If hiring for Black Tie Laceration, I'd greatly prefer it if the lights could be dimmed and I could have some room to jump around a bit. I do a little bit of theatrics with BTL, so there should be some room to move.
