Julia Kierstine









“Soprano Julia Kierstine was a splendid Amelia.  She would reach for climactic notes fearlessly, rendering them truly and without shrillness – then drop to a sweet, beautifully controlled mezza voce.  The long Act II duet proved the afternoon’s musical highlight.”
---Joshua Kosman,  San Francisco Chronicle


Soprano Julia Kierstine has an eclectic musical background that includes opera, concert and recital repertoire.  Miss Kierstine has received rave reviews for her many performances of the classic Verdi and Puccini heroines.  Miss Kierstine has also won praise for her sensitive interpretations and advocacy of contemporary music repertoire.  Reviewing performances with The Cleveland Chamber Symphony, in Bernard Rands’ Canti Lunatici, Donald Rosenberg of the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote:  

“Julia Kierstine was magnificent in traversing the varied demands.  Her timbre was silvery, her pitch exact and her control of techniques complete.”
