Bio

Fresh. Expressive. Unexpected.
Discover the music and voice of Natalia Pardalis – pianist, singer/songwriter, and musical educator. This adventurous performer has emerged from the cocoon of the classical world, to create a new fusion of sound and soul. Blending her most powerful musical influences from childhood to the present – Classical, Jazz, the Standards, and Greek folk music – Natalia delivers a bold take on the familiar.

You’ll be able to experience this engaging artist soon. Look for Natalia’s debut album LIFE, produced by Juno award winning engineer, Rob Shallcross.
Inspired by greats such as Dean Martin, Anna Vissi, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Maria Callas, Nina Simone – and a little Mozart, Natalia has crafted a personal exploration of her life over the past ten years, and what it means to her.

LIFE is truly beautiful. With a variety of sounds, instruments, guest vocals, Natalia believes that you too will find your story within her story. Her mother taught her that “No musical mistake is a mistake…but rather a journey to make beautiful music. And that’s just what she’s been doing!
Natalia’s passion for LIFE also inspired her to found Maria’s Opus – a yearly event that “commemorates all of the mothers, aunts, sisters and friends lost to cancer.” Maria’s Opus is a musical showcase that entertains and inspires – pairing young talent with well respected professional performers. All proceeds benefit B.C. cancer research.
