Natalie’s passion for music was cultivated through her childhood while observing her family members perform in fílarmonicas in her mother’s native land, São Roque, Pico, Açores. She enrolled within the Music Society of St. Helen’s where she learned to play music on the clarinet and shortly after began performing with the ‘Banda do Sagrado Coraçāo de Jesus’. Natalie performed at numerous annual religious festivities including processions, and concerts such as the ‘Festas do Divino Espirito Santo’, ‘Festas do Senhor Santo Cristo’, ‘Nossa Senhora da Luz’, and many more, including Portugal Day parade where she was able to share her love for music with the Portuguese community in attendance.
Natalie and her family have often offered their benevolent services to St. Mary of the Angels Parish over the years. Their family has amassed hours on end of volunteerism with the organization, coordination, and participation in ‘Festas do Divino Espirito Santo’, ‘Festa de Nossa Senhora dos Anjos’, and more. The joy and unity that resonates throughout the Portuguese community during these traditions and festivities is why her family chooses to return year after year.
