Internationally acclaimed Soprano, Julia Radosz, has been praised for her "lovely lyric soprano" (Musical America) and her "warm tone and agile phrasing" (Austin XL). Her stunning voice coupled with her magnetic stage presence has won her many awards including first prize at The Jenny Lind, Marcella Sembrich, and Connecticut Concert Opera Competitions. She has performed leading roles with companies such as Annapolis Opera, Opera Naples, and Miami Lyric Opera. Her vast musical understanding enable her to tailor her programs to fit a variety of occasions- from weddings, light cocktail parties, formal corporate events, to full classical concerts.
Ms. Radosz was so incredibly lovely to work with for our event and she arrived promptly and looked beautiful and sang beautifully. We were so thrilled and pleased with her performance. Music experts at our Memorial at the college were very impressed with Ms. Radosz and I felt so blessed to have been able to facilitate her appearance. She was charming and very professional throughout. I would highly recommend her.
Julia was the surprise entertainment at my mother-in-law's surprise party last night. Both my mother-in-law, and all the guests, were so excited to have a professional opera singer in our house. It was truly like having a singer step off the stage into our living room. Also, the whole process was so easy. She was proactive and called me to get more details about what we were looking for and even brought her own amp. I want to plan another event so we can have her come sing!
Julia played the perfect part of a surprise opera performance. Both acting and song was perfectly excecuted. Amazing experience!
Julia sang a beautiful arrangement of arias of Puccini, Mozart , Schicchi and even a few Schubert Lieder (songs) that brought tears to eyes. She was the "surprise" artist that overwhelmed and delivered the music beautifully. We all loved her!
Excellent performance and easy planning.
Julia was a absolute pleasure to work with. She was punctual, professional and a wonderful singer. Knew the requested songs and sand a capella beautifully. We would definitely recommend Julia.
Julia performed at my birthday party last week. It was an intimate dinner party in a private room at a restaurant. She immediately blew us away with her incredible voice and animated performance. She truly made my night special. Thanks again!

What to Expect
Julia's recent reviews:
"Julia Radosz was a perky appealing Tormentilla" "Julia Radosz was a properly dreamy, petulant Lydia"
(New York Times- Steve Smith)
“Julia Radosz sang Tormentilla with a lovely lyric soprano that gave special resonance to the girl’s reflective utterances, like the amusing song in which she fears that her poisonous qualities will preclude true love.”
(Musical America- George Loomis)
"Julia Radosz portrayed the suffering singer Antonia with a pliable and rich soprano and was convincing in presenting a tragic heroine whose own voice becomes her demise."
(Broome Arts Mirror)
-Les Contes d'Hoffmann
“Ms. Radosz's Sembrich performance was conducted at the beautiful St. Stanislaus Shrine in Slavic Village, Cleveland. Her first offering was “Martern aller Arten”, Wolfgang Mozart. She made a vivid and enduring first impression – very effervescent with a beautiful expressive face and truly powerful voice. Julia'a performance of “Robert, toi que j’aime” by G. Meyerbee revealed her enormous and surprising power as a singer, providing an enchanting sense of immense human emotion. She has a regal princess bearing. Yet, Julia has the strength and grace to sing songs like “‘Tis the Last Rose of Summer” with a coquettish charm and warm and loving delivery. The ACPC members and guests reacted to her mesmerizing performance by rising and applauding vigorously at length, showing their appreciation for Julia’s outstanding performance of her entire program.”
(American Council for Polish Culture Newsletter)
Julia Radosz is quickly establishing herself with the works of Verdi, Mozart, and the Bel Canto repertoire. She has been praised by Musical America as a “lovely lyric soprano” (George Loomis), impressing with her “warm tone and agile phrasing” (Austin XL). Her recent debut of La Traviata with Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and Delaware Valley Opera met with much enthusiasm for her “astonishing performance, brilliant soprano and thrilling embellishments that were augmented by the most subtle and heart-rending acting” (Voche di Meche).
In the 2014-2015 season Ms. Radosz reprised the role of Gilda in Rigoletto with North Shore Music Festival, conducted by Anthony LaGruth, performed in a concert featuring works of Verdi and Donizetti with Annapolis Opera, and sang scenes from Rigoletto and La Traviata with Gulfshore Opera in their inaugural season concert Viva Verdi, under the baton of Maestro Paul Nadler. Earlier this season, she was called upon last minute in a role debut of Oscar in Un ballo in maschera with Miami Lyric Opera, which she sang to great acclaim under the baton of Imre Pallo. The Miami Herald wrote: "As the page Oscar, [Julia Radosz’s] well-schooled soubrette, captivating personality and pinpoint coloratura riveted attention"(Lawrence Budmen). Later this season, she will sing the lead role of Olympia in an operatic world premiere of Haim Elisha's A Certain Quiet with the Off-Broadway Theater for the New City.
During the 2013-2014 season, Ms. Radosz appeared as Berenice in Rossini's L'occasione fa il ladro with Little OPERA Theatre of NY, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi with Raylynmor Opera, and Lydia Larkspur in the NY Premiere of Kirke Mechem's The Rivals with Bronx Opera, in which she was praised by The New York Times for her “properly dreamy, petulant Lydia” and Broadway World for her “strong, musically adept performance”. She also performed several recitals themed on the artistry of Marcella Sembrich.
Ms. Radosz has garnered numerous awards, including: Winner of the Jenny Lind Competition, Connecticut Concert Opera Competition, Marcella Kochanska Sembrich Vocal Competition, and the 5 Towns Music and Arts Foundation Competition, a Grant Winner from The CareerBridges Foundation, 2nd Place in the Kosciuszko Foundation's Marcella Sembrich Vocal Competition, 2nd Place in the National Federation of Music Club's Biennial Young Artist Awards, the Bel Canto Award at the Orpheus Competition, finalist in the Liederkranz Competition General Opera Division, and a guild encouragement recipient at the Palm Beach Opera Competition.
