Julia White gained her Postgraduate Advanced Diploma with distinction from Trinity College of Music and was awarded the Wilfred Hambleton Prize for the most outstanding contribution to wind chamber music. She was subsequently a Junior Fellow at the college during which she mentored undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Julia was invited to perform the cor anglais solos in Wagner's Tristan and Isolde with Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra, Chile, and received excellent reviews in the Chilean national press. She was subsequently given a permanent position with the orchestra, which she held until deciding to return to the UK in 2009, where she now freelances. During her time in Chile, Julia also performed in chamber recitals as oboe soloist with string principals from the orchestra.

Julia's concerto experience includes the Strauss Oboe Concerto at St John's, Smith Square, the Mozart Oboe Concerto with Morley College Chamber Orchestra, and Albinoni Double Oboe Concerto with the Adoramus Orchestra.

She is a member of Azure flute, oboe and piano trio, and Absolute oboe/guitar duo, giving regular recitals and informal performances in hospitals.

Julia White (Oboe, Oboe D'amore, Cor Anglais) Profile


"Richard Strauss's Oboe Concerto found an ideal interpreter tonight. Julia White is an alumnus of Morley College and after several years playing with the Santiago Philharmonic she has returned to her home shores to continue her career. This was a most assured performance, full of warm lyricism and dazzling virtuosity. From the outset the music floated on air, both White and Peebles understanding that this is not a serious piece but an 18th century divertissement, meant to be enjoyed and not pondered over. White was clearly audible throughout - not always easy in the big acoustic of St John's - and with a discreet accompaniment from Peebles and his orchestra - the wind band was especially good - this made for a fine performance."   Bob Briggs, Music Web International

For Tristan and Isolde, Santiago, Chile:
"We could not forget to mention the expressive and beautiful sound of the cor anglais at the beginning of the third act. Lovely sound, impeccable intonation, precise phrases, shapes and articulations, but above all an expressiveness that was fundamental for the resulting dramatic finale."   El Mercurio

"...with a great performance in the cor anglais solo" (New World Symphony)
"...the notable and musical accompaniment of the cor anglais" (Rodrigo Guitar Concerto)  : El Mercurio
