With classical roots and a passion for improvisation, I guarantee a dynamic program tailored to your event. I enjoy working with clients to find music they love, whether that be classical, rock, folk, and/or jazz.
After recently graduating from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, I'm excited to make music in Colorado.
Julia played violin for my wedding on August 10, 2018 in Crested Butte, Colorado. She is an absolutely stunning violinist, familiar with classical, pop, fiddle and any type of music you can imagine. She is also extremely friendly and very reliable. She scheduled an in-person consultation to meet with my husband and me and get a clear idea of our expectations months before the wedding. We asked her to play the theme song of The Princess Bride for when I walked down the aisle. Not only did she play the song beautifully, but she also custom arranged the piece just for us. In total she played violin for over two hours, and my guests could not stop raving about how much they loved her music. It was such a blessing to have her in my wedding. I would recommend her to everyone!!
Response from Julia Shizuyo Popham -- Musician:
Thank you so much, Jennifer! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed playing for your wedding. Thank you for including me like a friend. Congratulations again on your marriage!

What to Expect
I'm flexible, punctual, and easy to reach. My goal is to make the music planning as simple and easy as possible!
Julia recently graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Science in Music (violin). During her time in university, she expanded her classical training through studying Irish fiddling in Donegal, Ireland, and American fiddling through Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. As an alumni of Carnegie Hall's U.S. National Youth Orchestra, Julia has performed in venues such as the Kennedy Center, the Great Hall, Mariinsky II, and the Royal Albert Hall, where she was recorded for the BBC Proms. Julia is a proud native of Colorado, and hopes to build an even stronger music community here.
Additional Booking Notes
If your event requires more sound, I have an acoustic plugin and amp. Also, if you are interested in less orthodox playing, I have been exploring an electric loop that can overlap my sound into a fuller, ensemble sound.
