Director- Julia Fabrizio
In summer 2018, Julia Fabrizio returned to the US after 8 years of teaching internationally in Milan, Dubai, and Panama City. She has taught the gamut: general music, musical theatre, choirs, and private voice lessons with students ages 4 through 18 years at institutions of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. She teaches music and choir at Richmond Elementary and directors Sonnet from the Willamette Girlchoir both in Salem.
For the last four years, she has been involved with the Association for Music in International Schools (AMIS), attending their Music Educators Conference in Warsaw and Dubai, and chaperoning students at choral music festivals in Amsterdam and Jakarta. Originally from San Francisco Bay Area, Julia has interned and volunteered at the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choirs and their Golden Gate International Choral Festival, assisting with international touring and stage management.
Staying true to her choral roots, Julia co-founded an international adult chamber choir while living in Milan, Italy--Lombardic International Choir--filled with singers from around the globe. She also started the elementary choral programs at Dubai American School, where there had only been general music offered. She has recorded music for Italian films, most recently “Siberian Education”, directed by Gabriele Salvatores (2013), which received a nomination for best original music. You can find recordings of her solo and choral singing on “Phi” from the album Back to Back, by Paolo Bonifacio and House of Voices by Volti, an esteemed professional choir dedicated to promoting New Music. All recordings are available on iTunes.
Ms. Fabrizio is thrilled to be working with the singers of Silverton Children’s Choir and the community at large. “We have a great opportunity to build music programs for children to learn to express themselves through their music making and the important technique of choral singing.”
