About Altea Narici: Altea Narici is a traveling musician and artist from Italy, researching ecology and wildlife-related topics through performance, composition and community projects. She plays Cello, sings classical and traditional repertoires, and creates original songs about her connection to the natural world and the communities she encounters.

She has a Master’s degree in Cello performance from the prestigious Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Italy. She has performed internationally, taking part in festivals including the Macerata Opera Festival, the Ravenna Festival, the Festival dei Due Mondi di Spoleto and Itacà Festival, joining ensembles and orchestras such as the 100Cellos, the ONBA (Orchestra national Bordeaux Aquitaine) and the Sesto Armonico Orchestra (Italy, France), and performing her music solo at the Centro Celacanto (Apulia), the general quarters of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation (Bruxelles), the Richard Jefferies Museum (UK), the Chachalu Museum and Cultural Center of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde (United States).

Currently, she is an Ambassador Artist of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation and the Artist-in-residence and workshop instructor at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon (United States). This Spring, Altea will travel to Hawai'i and Mexico, interacting with local communities and conservation organizations along the way. Her goal is to explore creative outreach approaches to connect with natural environments through the arts.
