Alumni Spotlight: Catch Up with Natalie Kasievich

by Emily Bovan

We love to hear from our alumni and what they’ve been doing since their time with Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras. Natalie Kasievich was a violinist in TRYPO from 1992-1999. Read more about Natalie and her latest accomplishments:

Natalie’s love for music started at the age of four when she began playing the violin. By age nine, she had become a member of the Symphonette violin section.

“I spent Saturday afternoons with TRYPO for almost a decade. It was a very fun and influential part of my life. I am very grateful for my experience with the organization that became like a second family.”

Natalie grew up in the North Hills area of Pittsburgh and attended Sewickley Academy. After graduation, she attended Wheeling Jesuit University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership. She then continued her schooling at Carnegie Mellon University to earn a master’s degree in public management.

Natalie continues her craft today by playing with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. She was also the former board president, where she doubled the operating budget during her tenure. And further displaying her passion for the arts, Natalie started her new role as Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra’s executive director in May.  

“When I worked on the board of the Edgewood Symphony, I had fallen in love with arts management, so this is the perfect opportunity to combine my passions for orchestral music and management.”

We are so excited to hear about Natalie’s career achievements!
