Their performances have enchanted leaders from around the world, including the Presidents of China, Russia, and France.
Holding the distinction of an eight-time President’s scholar in Russia’s music realm, Renée’s talent was evident early on when they made Russia’s Top 100 promising youth list at 17. Their educational path led through Saint-Petersburg University of Performing Arts and Viennese Conservatory for Jazz performance. Currently, Renée is honing their skills at Berklee College of Music as a songwriter and music producer under a full scholarship.
Guided by a passion for teaching, Renée embarked on this path at 16, aiming to impart their unique musical perspective. Their dedication to nurturing future vocalists, keyboardists, and songwriters is poised to shape the next generation.
“Renata is an incredibly talented singer who has already managed to find her own “voice.” I find this remarkable because so much of jazz vocal repertoire is in a language that is not Renata’s native tongue, yet she possesses the ability to tell the story of each song she sings.”
– Peter Erskine (Professor of Practice, Jazz Studies. USC Thornton School of Music. Grammy Award recipient).
