Julie Andrijeski

Violin

Lauded for her “invigorating verve and imagination” by the Washington Post, Julie Andrijeski is among the leading baroque violinists in the U.S. Her unique musical performance style is greatly influenced by her knowledge and skilled performance of baroque dance, and she often combines these two mediums in the classroom, on stage, and at workshops. Ms. Andrijeski is a Senior Instructor in the Music Department at Case Western Reserve University where she teaches early music performance practices and directs the Baroque Dance and Music Ensembles. Before joining the Case faculty, Ms. Andrijeski was a full-time member of the early-music trio Chatham Baroque. Now, in addition to her teaching, Ms. Andrijeski regularly appears with many baroque groups including, among others, the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra (Artistic Director), Quicksilver (Co-Director), the New York State Baroque Orchestra (Concertmaster), Apollo’s Fire (Principal Player), and the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra. During the summers she teaches and performs at the Oberlin Conservatory’s Baroque Performance Institute, the Madison Early Music Festival, and the Vancouver Early Music Festival.
