Julia Noone

A native of Worcester, MA, violinist Julia Noone is currently the Assistant Concertmaster of the Louisville Orchestra and has recently performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Sun Valley Symphony, and as a guest Associate Principal with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Before moving to Louisville in January, Julia was a fellow at the New World Symphony, where she was regularly Concertmaster and performed as soloist in Szymanowski’s Second Concerto after winning the 2014/15 season concerto competition. Other recent solo engagements include a performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto with La Academia Filarmonica de Medellín, Colombia.

Noone spent multiple summers performing with the Moritzburg Academy, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, and the Tanglewood Music Center, where she was awarded the Jules C. Reiner violin prize and spent three summers performing as Concertmaster under such conductors as Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos and Andris Nelsons. Other summer festival engagements have included a performance as Concertmaster for the St. Matthew Passion with the Spoleto Festival, USA and two seasons as Assistant Concertmaster of Ash Lawn Opera in Charlottesville, VA.

An avid chamber musician, Julia’s recent engagements have included collaborations with the Palladium Chamber Players in St. Petersburg, FL and a performance of the Korngold Suite with pianist Orion Weiss. While at Tanglewood, Julia studied chamber music with Emanuel Ax, John Harbison, and Yo-Yo Ma. Julia attended the New England Conservatory, where she studied violin with Masuko Ushioda and chamber music with the Weilerstein Trio and Lucy Chapman.

Julia Noone said, “I am thrilled to be joining the Louisville Orchestra as Assistant Concertmaster this fall. From performing with world-renowned soloists, to improvising with the whole orchestra in concert, to giving multiple world premiers, my experience since joining the LO as interim Assistant Concertmaster in January has been an exhilarating artistic challenge. It’s an exciting ensemble to be a part of right now and I’m honored to continue working with Teddy Abrams, whose visionary leadership is reaching far beyond Louisville. I can’t wait to begin the 2016-17 season with this incredible orchestra!”
