Soprano Julianna Emanski is a Grammy nominated vocalist who has gained attention for her three octave performance range and a high extension that “soars ecstatically” and is “simply gorgeous” (Music Web International). Julianna’s versatility of musical styles allows her to perform repertoire from the 12-century chants of Hildegard von Bingen to coloratura repertoire such as the Queen of the Night from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Zerbinetta from Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, and Cunegonde from Bernstein’s Candide, leaving in her wake unique musical experiences that are “simply to die for.” (Musical Mayhem)
In 2019, Julianna performed for HBO's Game of Thrones final season activation in collaboration with The American Red Cross and Giant Spoon. Her work appears on Blizzard Entertainment’s soundtracks for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, and World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
Julianna's solo voice can be heard on the 2017 Grammy Nominated album “Tyberg Masses” and 2015 album “Sacred Songs of Life and Love” with the South Dakota Chorale under Pentatone records, as well as the world premiere recording of Giovanni Felice Sances' Missa Sancta Maria Magdalenae (Viva Italia!).
Julianna is frequently a featured soloist across Texas. She has sung the title roles in the North American premieres of the 1732 version of Handel’s oratorio Esther and Reinhard Kaiser’s opera Der Sieg der fruchtbaren Pomona.
Julianna is highly specialized in historically informed performance practices. She is the artistic director of Lumedia Musicworks, an early music ensemble based in Dallas/Fort Worth TX.
Julianna completed her doctoral studies at the University of North Texas in music entrepreneurship and vocal pedagogy.
