Violist Julie Michael strives to bring the same spirit of sincerity to the performance of music of all eras. A native of Columbus, Ohio, she can be heard performing with a variety of Bay Area ensembles ranging from sfSound to the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. Her passion for new music has led her to collaborate with many composers, to participate in the Montreal Contemporary Music Lab, and to teach a course on contemporary chamber music at McGill University. As violist of Amaranth Quartet, Julie has held residencies at the Banff Centre, New Music on the Point, and Lake Tahoe Music Festival. Julie holds degrees from the University of Michigan and McGill University.
