NY Saw Festival, July 18 Queens
Natalia Paruz, also known as “The Saw Lady” has spent the last 10 years bringing the art of the musical saw to audiences high and low. She is a NYC subway musician that has performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta, at Carnegie Hall, at Madison Square Garden, and at numerous other events, including the Spoleto Festival, Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, and on film, radio, and television.
Natalia has received citations of honor from the New York City Council, the New York State Senate and a medal of honor from Paris, France. She’s been featured in the “Best of” of numerous magazines, and people love to write about her work. I think it’s no stretch of the imagination to say that she is one of the pre-eminent Musical Saw Players in the world.
She is putting together the world’s largest convocation of Musical Saw Performers on Saturday July 18 in an attempt to break a Guinness world record for largest Musical Saw Ensemble.
