Biography
Julia Schwartz has dual citizenship of Switzerland and the USA. She was born in Columbus, Ohio and received an early musical education from her parents. On completing her singing studies at Oberlin College Conservatory in 1985 she continued her education with music theory and singing in Munich and Zurich. During this period she appeared as a soloist in church concerts, song recitals and music theatrical projects, with particular emphasis on the twentieth century. Julia Schwartz has been composing for many years, predominantly writing chamber music for various forces including lieder with piano accompaniment, pieces for solo piano and chamber music pieces for voice with various instruments. Two of her pieces, 'Variations, Additions and Distractions' and 'Color, Form and Dissolution', were performed by the pianist Hans Jörg Fink and recorded by Swiss Radio DRS2. She has been realising concepts for theatre projects since 2003.
