Bio

American Soprano Julie Norman, holds degrees in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College and the Eastman School of Music. Featured frequently as a recitalist, Miss Norman was hailed by the Times Union as a "Pick of Week," for her touring performances as the Soloist with the Capitol Chamber Artists in the Kleine Magnificat by Bach. "Julie Norman's voice was perfectly matched to the demands of the nearly constant coloratura, and her ravishing vocal quality gave this piece the great chance for acceptance that it deserves." (Paul Nudelman, Arts and Entertainment). A lover of German lieder and Mozart, Norman has performaned multiple times as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Pamina and the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute. She was featured prominently with the MosaicArts Opera recital series, and in Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, receiving praise from the Times Union for her performance as the "Cheery, brilliant Amore," and with encore performances. Miss Norman has enjoyed singing roles from all ends of the spectrum: as Flora in Benjamin Britten's The Turn of the Screw, the title role in Purcell's The Fairy Queen, at the Euroculture Festival in Auvergne, France, and several musical theater roles including Sarah Brown in "Guys and Dolls," Erma in "Anything Goes!" Cunegonde in "Candide,"and Maria in "West Side Story." A first place winner in the N.A.T.S competition, she became a finalist of the "Friends of Eastman Opera Competition," and a prize winner in the Jessie Kneisel German Lieder Competition. She performed as the soprano soloist in Faure's Requiem, in Morristown, Tennessee, and Handel's Messiah in NYC. Julie was thrilled to have active seasons in NYC, singing the roles of Queen of the Night in Mozart's Die Zauberflote, and Annina and Adele in performances of 'La Traviata,' and 'Die Fledermaus'. Of several reviews, she was mentioned by popular Opera blog "OperaRox!": "Soprano Julie Norman’s Queen of the Night took command of the stage, her bell-like voice gracefully executing the arias with technical finesse." Julie was recently seen in the Schiedam Opera aan die Schie festival in Holland, and as a soloist at the Dutch National Opera house as a part of the Orfeo Foundation in July. She currently resides in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
