Julia Connor fell in love with the violin at an early age and spent several years wandering around the house playing air violin until her parents finally took the hint and signed her up for lessons.  She has since developed an eclectic musical palette, performing everything from baroque music on period instruments to fiddle music from Ireland to new works by living composers.  Julia teaches orchestra, composition, and violin at the Winsor School in Boston and also maintains a private studio in Roslindale, MA.

Julia is a founding member of both the violin and piano duo Room to Spare, which writes and performs original groove based new music, and of the Berwick Fiddle Consort, an early music ensemble which performs historical folk music from the British Isles on period instruments.  When she isn’t playing music, Julia loves to daydream about traveling, listen to podcasts, and bake bread with her sourdough starter, Sir Lancelot.
