The Canadian soprano, Julia Morson, has been praised for her versatility of sound and style working and teaching in all genres of music from opera, oratorio, and early music to theatre, new music and jazz. She enjoys the collaborative nature of music and spends much of her time working on projects that bring together artists from a variety of musical and cultural genres.
Julia appears on a variety of recordings with many Juno and GRAMMY nominated ensembles, including Andrew Davis’ Grammy Nominated Messiah (Chandos, 2016); “Revelation” (music by Patrick Hawes -release February 2017); “The Vale of Tears” (Analetka, 2015); and “Apocalypsis” (Analekta, 2016) as well as her 2015 solo debut of Mahler’s Symphony #2.
Julia also regularly premiers new compositions, and has collaborated with many composers, including the January 2016 World Premiere of David Briggs’s Three Motets for High Soprano and Organ. Working with an eclectic mix of ensembles ranging from early music specialists to classical/psychedelic fusion bands, she has appeared across Europe and North America, including performances in London, Liverpool, Dublin, Paris, Milan, Siena, New York City, and Toronto.
