Julia Wade is one of those rare and gifted crossover vocalists who can handle both worlds (classical and pop) with great style and grace. On top of it all, she is a singer who has the ability to get deeply into the lyric and magically inspire the audience. Described by Inside World Music as “the female equivalent of Josh Groban,” Julia is an inspirational and classical crossover artist whose work spans diverse musical styles. She has performed nationally and internationally as a concert soloist, as well as in opera, cabaret and musical theatre, including The Rome Opera and Carnegie Hall.
Recently, Julia starred in a series of performances of a new concert project called “Is Anybody Listening?” at New York City’s Sheen Center for Thought and Culture. Julia will be appearing in live-streaming and live-hosted webcasts of “Is Anybody Listening?” beginning on April 15th and April 23rd, 2017.
As a concert artist, Julia has carved out a unique path as an inspirational singer — touring her evocative solo concerts to a variety of venues from large concert halls to intimate theatres and churches. Julia takes her audience on an inspirational journey in which she grapples with issues of the world at large as well as the individual human condition. Her concert experience is described as being “beautifully entertain[ing] all the while your soul is being nourished!”
Julia completed a successful seven-year run as soloist at the headquarters of a worldwide church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA.
Defining her work, Julia says, “I sing evocative ideas, working to inspire change in the world and healing in individual lives.”
