Julia Soojin Cavallaro, mezzo-soprano, is an accomplished solo and ensemble singer whose repertoire spans oratorio, opera, art song, choral, and sacred music. She received her bachelor’s degree in music from Harvard College and master’s degree in voice from the Boston University College of Fine Arts. Critics have praised her “warm mezzo, perfect diction, and easy phrasing” (New York Classical Review) and “round, chocolaty tone” (Boston Classical Review). She is frequently in demand as a professional choral artist and sings regularly with the Choir of the Church of the Advent, Ensemble Altera, the Handel and Haydn Society, Upper Valley Baroque, and GRAMMY-nominated groups Skylark Vocal Ensemble and True Concord Voices & Orchestra. Her recent oratorio solo appearances include Bach’s St. John Passion with Ashmont Hill Chamber Music, Handel’s Messiah with the Kent Singers, Haydn’s Theresienmesse with Concord Chorus, and Vivaldi’s Gloria with the New England Classical Singers. An avid chamber musician and recitalist, Julia has performed numerous times with Renaissance ensembles Schola Cantorum of Boston and Seven Times Salt. She is thrilled to be joining In Stile Moderno for the first time in 2024. Julia lives in Cambridge with her partner, Dan, and two cats, Bun and Gin.
