Julie holds a BA in Performance from Marygrove College in Detroit, an MA in Vocal Performance from Mannes College of Music in New York City, and a DMA in Vocal Pedagogy from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.


She has performed works from Bach to Burleigh and was chosen as the Mezzo-Soprano soloist in a BBC televised performance of Bernstein's Chichester Psalms with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Sir Charles Groves.

Her performances have been described as "a striking bit of tone painting" and her voice as "a wonderful instrument, which she produced without effort from top to bottom".


As a director of Voice Studies at Oakwood University, Julie Moore Foster has enjoyed the successes of her students who have entered top graduate programs, won national opera competitions and perform in opera, oratorio, gospel, jazz and other genres worldwide.

About the album

 

Soul Songs is a study of music that moves us. It's a homogenous blend of various folk traditions that are informed by both  Black American and European song traditions. This collection brings these timeless pieces markedly to the present through the lens of jazz sensibility.

The seven songs on this album were chosen for their timeless and universal appeal and contain musical and literary elements that move us emotionally: the pentatonic scale, step-wise motion, returning themes, memorable performances and poetic motifs of deliverance, redemption, life and love.

This project is lovingly dedicated to Julie's father, Granville E. Moore, for sharing his love of music with her and for supporting her dreams since childhood.
