JULIA HILL - VIOLIN SOLOIST
Recent recipient of the prestigious New Colombo Plan Scholarship, violinist Julia Hill has flourished into passionate performer of classical music. Guided by former Arditti String Quartet violinist, Graeme Jennings, she was appointed Concertmaster of the Curro Chamber Orchestra at the Australian Youth Orchestra’s National Music Camp 2020 and has achieved an Award with Distinction on her Licentiate of Music, Australia.
A 2020 Bachelor of Music graduate from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Julia has performed as a soloist alongside the Indooroopilly Chamber Orchestra and the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra. This year she is looking forward to presenting a series of concerts with emerging ensemble, the Jacaranda String Quartet.
With a 2020 New Colombo Plan Scholarship, Julia has turned to overseas study to propel her love for music. In 2022, she will undertake study, internships and language training in Japan. During her program, she will investigate the role music plays in Japan’s society and is looking forward to collaborating with Japanese musicians and educators as part of her Honours thesis.
For now, you can catch Julia performing alongside other young artists and professionals at the Brisbane Music Festival.
