Violinist Julia Glenn has been hailed as “remarkable,” “gripping,” and a “brilliant soloist” (New York Times) and “fully focused and betraying not one whit of insecurity” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Currently Faculty and a doctoral candidate at the Juilliard School, she obtained her master’s from New England Conservatory in 2013 and her bachelor’s in linguistics magna cum laude from Harvard University in 2012.

A devoted solo and chamber musician, Julia has concertized widely and has recently appeared on stages including Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, Sanders Theatre, Jordan Hall, the Beijing Recital Hall, and Shanghai Concert Hall. In January of 2016 she gave the world premiere of Milton Babbitt’s violin concerto to critical acclaim.

Ms. Glenn has a deep interest in exploring and sharing the music and culture of China. In addition to her role as performer, she also draws upon her background in linguistics and Chinese language to open up fruitful avenues in the arena of Chinese music theory and performance. Her doctoral dissertation is titled “Hearing in Tone: A Phonetic Approach to the Analysis and Performance of Chinese Contemporary Music.” She has recently presented talks and lecture-performances on her work at the Hamburg Hochschule für Musik und Theatre, Harvard University, Shanghai Conservatory, Beijing Central Conservatory, and Juilliard.

2013年Julia Glenn以优异的成绩从哈佛大学毕业并取得了Magna cum laude(最优等的文科学士),她所攻读的专业是音韵学(语言学的领域之一)。她的毕业论文是研究以英语为母语的人怎样学会与掌握声调。Julia上哈佛的同时也在新英格兰音乐学院读小提琴硕士学位,她取得了哈佛大学与新英格兰音乐学院的双学位。这个双学位是美国最具有竞争性的学位之一,每年在全美范围内只会有3到7个学生被录取。 纽约时报评论Julia的演奏“极具吸引力,且感人肺腑。”  今年,她进入了茱莉亚音乐学院攻读博士学位。

读本科生的时候,Julia是哈佛大学交响乐团的首席小提琴。她也获得过哈佛大学的很多重量级的奖学金 。2012-13年她受邀成为了哈佛Pforzheimer House的“Artist-in-Residence”(哈佛大学常驻音乐家)。这是一个非常特殊的荣誉,马友友也曾经获得过此项荣誉。

她曾经在很多世界著名的舞台上演奏过,包括美国卡内基音乐厅,哈佛大学的Sanders Theatre,新英格兰音乐学院的Jordan Hall, 茱莉亚音乐学院的Peter Jay Sharp Theater以及中国的北京音乐厅。并且,她曾经在哈佛大学和新英格兰音乐学院与马友友和Roger Tapping(茱莉亚四重奏的中提琴家)同台献艺。
