Composer, musician, and performing artist, Latteta Theresa began her career as flutist with the District of Columbia Youth Symphony Orchestra. Her dexterity and musical ability has known no bounds.
She excels in the varying fields of Pop, Classical Jazz, New Age and Musical Theatre. Accordingly she unites her original passions for classical, renaissance and baroque music and the velvet rhythms of Jazz, creating her own special fusion. She’s a multidimensional impressionistic flutist. Her music communicates directly to the soul. Her Flute transcends lyrics. It speaks a language only the heart can decipher.
Latteta has added genres: World and Dance/Electronica to her library of compositions since 2014. You will experience both these genre along with African, Latin, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, Salsa and Classical flavors fused in her up coming album Trance To Heaven.
Latteta’s solo career has taken her to stages and nightclubs throughout the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. She has graced the stage of many other performers, among them: Roberta Flack, Baba Olatunji, Sheila“E”, Dave Valentine and Patti La Belle just to name a few.
Dr. Deborah Freedman, Conductor of the St Joseph Symphony invited Latteta to perform her children’s story, ‘When I Grow Up – A Fairy Tale Or Is It?’ for their Children’s Concert Series, which featured Latteta as narrator and composer as well as performing the voices for all of the story characters. More than 3,600 students and staff enjoyed this performance, given in three back-to-back segments.
