Charlotte Haertling holds a dual degree from the University of Colorado in Vocal Performance and Music Education. She was the first person to graduate with these two degrees from this institution and is so glad she did! She is equally passionate for performing and teaching.
As a lyric soprano, Charlotte has had the pleasure of performing in a variety of settings and roles. She played the roles of a maid in Puccini’s Suor Angelica, a peasant in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, and the ghost of Meg in Adamo’s Little Women, all at the University of Colorado. She was also in the graduate chamber choir and had several soloist opportunities. She was a winner of the Anderson Voice Competition scholarship in 2013. Charlotte was chosen as the undergraduate music student to sing the Alma Mater at the CU graduation. She was in the Colorado Masterworks Choir in the fall of 2016 as the soprano section leader, and was featured as the soprano soloist in Haydn’s Creation. Charlotte has been employed as a cantor at Sacred Heart of Mary and Sacred Heart of Jesus, both in Boulder, for several years now. Every weekend she leads the music for the masses and sings a solo psalm. She also sings for funerals and weddings upon request. Charlotte also teaches music at the Friends School in Boulder.
Charlotte has always loved teaching children music. She loves guiding students through singing to discover and express these joyous parts of themselves. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing her students’ eyes light up when they finally understand something. Charlotte is looking forward to working with children who are enthusiastic about singing and want to learn more.
