Julia has appeared many times on live television and radio through the BBC and ITV and, in 2012, she was featured in a BBC4 documentary about the nation’s favourite composition The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Her performance of this work was specifically chosen by the BBC to represent this timeless classic of the great British composer, and the documentary has been re-broadcast on many occasions due to popular demand.
In 2015, she was appointed to be a cultural ambassador for the BRACE Alzheimer’s Society, alongside broadcasters Jonathan Dimbleby and Martyn Lewis.
Other public and charity performances have included performing at the 2012 Violins of Hope music festival in North Carolina, USA, with Shlomo Mintz and David Russell; a charity concert at Highgrove to raise funds for The Prince’s Trust alongside Julian Lloyd-Webber; and innumerable further concerts to raise money for, among others, The Alzheimer’s Society, the NSPCC and MacMillan Cancer Relief.
Julia began her violin studies at the age of seven with Richard Crabtree as an academic and music scholar at Clifton College, Bristol, and currently studies with Itzhak Rashkovsky in London.
She plays on a Peter Guarnerius of Mantua violin (c.1698), on generous loan from the Alderson Trust.
