Praised for her “penetrating lyrical agility, exquisitely phrased” (Jay Harvey Upstage), “notably stylish and expressive” soprano Julie Bosworth finds joy and fulfillment in collaborating with artists across a vast array of musical genres. From medieval cantigas to world premiers, this versatile singer revels in the performance practice of every age. In April 2018, she made her debut with the American Bach Soloists singing the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610. This season, Julie will return to San Francisco to sing The Hunt Cantata with the American Bach Soloists and will make her debut with Tempesta di Mare in Philadelphia singing Handel’s Messiah.
She has been featured on live radio broadcasts by NPR, All Classical Portland, WBJC and WYPR in Baltimore, and WGBH Boston. On the operatic stage, Julie has performed with American Opera Theater, Opera Studio Nederland, Raylynmor Opera, Opera AACC, and Peabody Opera Theater, singing such roles as Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), Cleopatra (Giulio Cesare), Belinda (Dido and Aeneas), Blanche de la Force (Dialogues of the Carmelites), and the title role in L’incoronazione di Poppea. Equally at home on the concert stage, she has appeared as a soloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Mountainside Baroque, the Tucson Desert Song Festival, Baltimore Choral Arts Society, and The Bach Choir of Bethlehem. Julie is a core member of the critically acclaimed chamber group The Broken Consort, an exuberant and experimental medieval and new music ensemble. Furthermore, she has sung extensively with The Peabody Consort, Hesperus, The Thirteen, The Bridge Ensemble, The New Consort, and hexaCollective.
Julie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Millikin University and a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance and Early Music from The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. She resides in Baltimore with her partner Corbin and their two dogs, and she is a chorister at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.
