JULIAN POZNIAK, a longtime devotee of vocal music and classical repertoire, is a recent graduate of Carleton College where he received a BA in Music and Political Science. With a history of musical study beginning at the age of six, Julian's performance history includes concerts at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the White House. While attending Carleton College, Julian was closely involved in the vocal music scene of the institution, working for two years as the student conductor of the Carleton Choir and Carleton Singers where he took an active role in the choirs' productions of Handel's Messiah and Vivaldi's Gloria RV589, wielding the baton for the latter performance. Outside of choral music, he has also pursued other projects including the directing, conducting, and co-producing of Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona, Carleton's first full-length, foreign language opera, a project which won him Carleton's Toni Award for the Arts. Beyond vocal music, Julian also has a background in piano, early music, musicology, and composition, the last of which he hopes to further pursue with graduate study.
