Kaitlyn Raitz


Kaitlyn Raitz

New York-born Nashvillian Kaitlyn Raitz grew up surrounded by a wide array of musical genres, finding each one more exciting than the next. These passions have led her to a career as a versatile cellist who is equally at home playing Schubert or Sondheim, sitting in on a bluegrass jam or reading a Beethoven string quartet, or performing on stage at New York’s Carnegie Hall or Nashville’s Station Inn.


Raitz’s debut solo album “Me, Myself, Myself, and I” was born out of her time in isolation during the pandemic. Struggling to find inspiration and purpose amidst a world with no live music or collaboration, she set a goal of composing and releasing one cello ensemble composition a month. Kaitlyn holds a Bachelor of Music degree and a Performer’s Certificate from Purchase College, State University of New York where she studied with Julia Lichten and a Master of Music degree from McGill University where she studied with Matt Haimovitz.
