JULIE ANDRIJESKI
baroque dance

Lauded for her “invigorating verve and imagination” (Washington Post), Julie Andrijeski is nationally admired as one of the few leading baroque violinists to have mastered the art of baroque dance. Her unique musical performance style is greatly influenced by her knowledge and skilled performance of baroque dance. Ms. Andrijeski is a full-time Lecturer in the Music Department at Case Western Reserve University where she teaches early music performance practices, baroque dance, and directs the Case/CIM Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles. She has led workshops for the Oberlin Conservatory (as Visiting Assistant Professor), Indiana University (as Visiting Faculty – Violin Instructor), Juilliard, the University of Southern California, and the University of Colorado – Boulder. During the summers, Ms. Andrijeski teaches baroque violin and dance at several festivals including Oberlin (BPI), Madison (MEMF), and Vancouver, BC (BIP).

She is the Artistic Director of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra and holds principal positions with New York State Baroque (Concertmaster), Quicksilver (Co-Director with baroque violinists Robert Mealy), Apollo’s Fire (principal player), Les Délices, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, and The King’s Noyse. She holds a D.M.A. in Early Music from Case Western Reserve University, an M.M. from Northwestern University and a B.M. from the University of Denver. Her recordings can be found on the Dorian, AVIE, Koch, Acis Productions, Centaur, and Musica Omnia labels.
