Occupation : Soprano

Julie's warmth and exceptional vocal talents have fast made her a new leading lady of the Australian stage. As a concert artist and theatrical performer, Julie sings music across a number of genres including musical theatre, opera, operetta and classical cross-over.

Julies professional career started at nineteen years of age when she was plucked from obscurity to perform the role of Christine Daae (alternate) in The Phantom of the Opera, starring Anthony Warlow. During 2007-2009 this production won critical acclaim throughout Australasia.

The following year Julie began production on Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, playing the role of 'Maria' in the 2010 Australian national tour. Press reviews were more than favourable for her portrayal with ‘The Australian’ stating that Julie’s ‘Maria’ was “the standout performance with her mixture of innocence and burgeoning sexuality.”

In 2010 Sydney Chamber Opera offered Julie the opportunity to perform in her first opera production, The Cunning Little Vixen. Janacek’s challenging score was a welcomed test and Julie performed the title role with “bright clarity” and “deceptive ease” (Sydney Morning Herald). This same year Julie released her debut classical album “Love Went a-Riding” for Skylark Classics, featuring Art Songs in English with Sharolyn Kimmorley on piano.

In 2011 Julie was thrilled to be cast as ‘Grace’ in the national tour of Annie, where she shared the stage with theatrical greats Nancy Hayes, Anthony Warlow and Todd Mckenney. Again Julie’s performance was well received by critics and public alike with the Courier Mail quoting, Julie’s “secretary Grace is a truly wonderful example of a gifted actress with an exceptional voice working magic”. She was nominated for a Green Room Award for her role in the production.

Julies concert highlights include, Opera in the Market with trumpet extraordinaire James Morrison, Carols by Candlelight at the Melbourne Myer Music Bowl (with Channel Nine Broadcast), Twisted Broadway Melbourne, Hats Off Sydney, Vivaldi's Gloria and Encore at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.

Julie is looking forward to performing with Sydney Philharmonia later this year in a Cole Porter Celebration Concert at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. She is also thrilled to appear in concert with Anthony Warlow at Opera in the Alps early next year.
