Julee-anne van der Boor
Soprano, Julee-anne van der Boor, received a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) in 1993 from the University of Queensland where she studied voice under Margaret Nickson. Since then she has worked with various groups both as a soloist and as a choir member. These groups include: the Cantilena Singers with whom she performed as the soloist in Bach’s B minor Mass and Magnificate and as a soloist in Purcell’s Ode to Saint Cecilia, Canticum Novum and Concentus. Julee-anne has also performed in several “Young Artist” and “Music at Midday” concerts organised by the Brisbane City Council.
In 1994 she was the musical director of a seven piece vocal ensemble comprising people with disabilities and able-bodied singers, who performed to much public acclaim throughout Brisbane. This was the same year that Julee-anne became the recipient of the Channel 10 Young Achiever of the Year Award in the category of Arts. She has worked extensively in jazz and contemporary music and performed in the IHOS Opera and Access Arts production of The Divine Kiss at the Energex Brisbane Festival in 1998. Following this success she has worked with various contemporary groups including the Queensland based Ensemble Six.
In 1999 Julee-anne toured to Hobart to perform in a reworked and revised season of “The Divine Kiss” in which her role was significantly increased. In 2000, Julee-anne received a grant from the Australia Council to undertake a program of mentorship and performance with IHOS Opera. This culminated in the presentation of a new chamber opera entitled “Spirits of the Hoist”.
In 2001 Julee-anne debuted in the chorus of Opera Queensland’s production of “The Magic Flute” and she now continues to perform with Opera Queensland in various concerts and productions.
Julee-anne is also continuing to develop her relationship with IHOS Opera. She travels to Hobart regularly to participate in various new productions, including “Schwa – The Neutral Vowel”, a chamber opera dealing with the intricacies of the human voice. Julee-anne also gives vocal lessons and master classes as part of her work with the IHOS Music Theatre Laboratory.
In 2002, Julee-anne commenced her Masters in Music Studies, majoring in Choral conducting and aural skill development.
