Artist info:
Julia Hart – Violin 1
Julia is currently in her 4th year of a BMus degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where she studies the violin. Her teacher is Diana Cummings. Before coming to Trinity Laban Julia was taught by Estzer Boda-Katona. Her most recent performances were Beethoven Sonata no. 6 in the King Charles Court Chapel last December and her violin saxophone duo recital at St. Sepulchre in Holborn. For Julia, playing the violin offers a never-ending stream of possibilities to explore variations in expression and interpretation, according to the historical period, place and performer. She finds the dynamic and diverse options exciting and they give her a reason to believe that the art of performance is a lifelong project.
