During 2020, Julia spearheaded several video projects with colleagues from orchestras throughout Europe and Canada, raising funds for the Bail Project and the Artist Relief Tree including “Moz’Art Attack!”, Mozart’s Alleluia with a twist, as well as “Gone in 60 Seconds”, a series of micro-commissions for voice and violin.

Upcoming engagements include Pulcinella with the French Radio Orchestra under the baton of Barbara Hannigan,and a house debut as Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia. She can be heard with pianist Anna Naretto on “Girl in the Snow”, an album of songs by composer Scott Ordway on the Acis label.
