Born and raised in Connecticut, Julie Reimann started playing the cello at age nine, and began studying with Aldo Parisot (Yale School of Music and Juilliard School), at age thirteen. Under his tutelage Julie performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Brazil, and won a number of music competitions, including Gold Medal in the New Haven Youth Symphony Young Artists Competition, First Prize in the Connecticut Chamber Orchestra Young Artists Competition, and Second Prize in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition Junior Division. Julie earned her Bachelor of Music degree in 1992 from Curtis Institute of Music where she was a student of David Soyer of the Guarneri String Quartet. During her four years at Curtis, Julie was an invited performer in the Nationale Academie de Violoncelle in Paris, France, as well as the Banff Music Festival, Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, Musicorda Music Festival, and Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and performed in the United States, Canada, and Europe. She won First Place in the Alliance Auditions National Music Competition in 1991, and was Principal cellist of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in her senior year. Julie graduated from Bryn Mawr College’s Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program in 1994, where she received the Horace Alwyn Prize for the student who contributed the most to musical life on campus. Julie continued to perform solo and chamber music recitals while pursuing her M.D. and Ph.D. in Biophysics at Stanford University (including in the Fortnightly Chamber Music Series in Palo Alto and the Soiree Musicale Chamber Music Series at Villa Montalvo), and during her residency and fellowship in Boston. She continues to perform chamber music as well as solo recitals locally in various venues, including as a soloist with the Waltham Symphony Orchestra (with whom she has also served as Principal Cellist) in 2016, and as a soloist with the Longwood Symphony in 2018.
