Known for delivering an “excellent performance” (Gramophone) “with dazzling effect” (Pittsburgh Stage Review), soprano Julia Fox shines in opera, concert, chamber, and new music.
Ms. Fox’s recent operatic successes include her well-received debut with Opera in the Heights as Amore in Orfeo ed Euridice, her creation of Gina in the world premiere and tour of The Puffed-Up Prima Donna with Houston Grand Opera’s Opera to Go!, her baroque opera debut with Ars Lyrica, and her break-out role as the title character in Strauss’s Die Schweigsame Frau with Opera Theater Pittsburgh.
In concert this season, Ms. Fox harnesses the momentum from her recent Carnegie Hall debut: she tours Texas presenting art song literature of living Texas-based composers, and she takes on major projects from the chamber music realm, including multiple world and regional premieres and two iconic works from the last century: George Crumb’s Apparition and Olivier Messaien’s Harawi.
Past seasons include performances with Houston Grand Opera, Opera Leggera, Midland Opera Theater, Empire Opera, enCANTA Collective, Aperio, Foundation for Modern Music, Greenbriar Consortium, Houston Baroque, and Duo Scordatura; and artist residencies with the Banff Centre, 47 Strings, and Texas A&M University.
A native Houstonian and graduate of HSPVA and Amherst College, she apprenticed with the Brentano String Quartet and Peabody Trio, and was a Fellow with SongFest and Da Camera.
