Julie Bosworth, soprano

From medieval cantigas to newly composed works, Julie Bosworth revels in versatile performance practice. Recognized for her “penetrating lyrical agility, exquisitely phrased” (Jay Harvey Upstage), this “notably stylish and expressive” singer finds joy and fulfillment in collaborating with artists across a vast array of musical genres.

In June, Julie finished recording her second album with The Broken Consort, singing original works by Emily Lau. The release of both albums is anticipated by the end of the year. This coming season, Julie looks forward to making her first appearances with the chamber ensembles Chantry, Kinnara, and Istanpitta, and to once again join Grammy-nominated True Concord, The Thirteen Chamber Choir, Mountainside Baroque, hexaCollective, and her group, co-founded with mezzo-soprano Janna Critz: Vivi Cantando.

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, 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 American Bach Soloists, Tempesta di Mare, 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, Third Practice, Les Canards Chantants, The Bridge Ensemble, The New Consort, and Zenith Ensemble.

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 is a chorister at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., and resides in Baltimore with her husband, baritone Corbin Phillips, and their two dogs.
