About Julianna

Cellist
Cardiff
Julianna is a bright young cellist, currently looking for work in Manchester.

Julianna began her relationship with the cello at the age of 5, visited by a travelling cellist and a story teller at her kindergarten. She then told the audition panel at her music school audition in Poland, abruptly refusing to play the violin, that she would like to play the cello. From that moment on, she studied cello performance and aural skills at this music school in Łódź, Poland for two years. After moving to England in 2010, she quickly joined a Saturday Morning Music School in Luton and found a mentor and teacher in a wonderful cellist, Alisa Liubarskya, who was currently studying at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London. Since 2010 she has been a student at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester, where she regularly participates in solo, chamber and orchestral projects and concerts as well as studying piano performance. Masterclasses with incredible cellists such as Guy Johnston, Jo Cole, Hannah Roberts, and Francis Gouton, as well as lessons with cellists Nitzan Laster, Lionel Handy, Alice Neary, Felix Schmidt and Richard Lester, and technique classes with Leandro Silvera and Sung-Won Yang, have truly transformed her view and way of playing. For three years running she was the recipient of the Graucob Music Awards, which have financially supported her and aided her in taking part in many interesting summer courses, such as the Language and Music for Life course in Llandovery and Hindhead Cello course. In 2015 she was awarded a full bursary to a National Youth Musical Theatre course, as a last-minute cellist and had the chance to perform Spring Awakening at the Curve Theatre in Leicester. In September 2016 she enrolled, and later completed, a Music Therapy course in Chetham's School of Music, which involved work with a licensed musical therapist. In November, that same year, she was the winner of the Rainhill Young Musician Competition, which was followed by a professional engagment, as principal cellist in Karl Jenkin's powerful oratorio, 'The Armed Man' . In June 2017 she was awarded an Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music Diploma in Performance. She was chosen to represent Chetham's School of Music in a Musical Exchange with the Victoria College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia in September 2017. Studying in Chetham's she has had the chance to discover and perform many styles of music. This includes taking part in a Frank Sinatra Tribute Concert, a Richard Rodgers and Hammerstein Celebration concert series as well as working with the singer Beverley Craven. Classical repertoire which she has had a chance to perform incorporates Mahler Symphony no.1, Sibelius Symphony no.5 and the orchestral version of Pictures at an Exhibition. In the years to come Julianna hopes to get involved in more projects such as the above and to continue to improve as a cellist and as a person.

A cellist with an excellent technical command...self- motivated, enquiring, and brings a serious attitude to her studies
