Lauded for her "invigorating verve and imagination" by the Washington Post, Julie Andrijeski is among the leading baroque violinists in the U.S.  Her unique musical performance style is greatly influenced by her knowledge and skilled performance of baroque dance, and she often combines these two mediums in the classroom, on stage, and at workshops. Ms. Andrijeski is a full-time Lecturer in the Music Department at Case Western Reserve University where she teaches early music performance practices, baroque dance, and directs the Case/CIM Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles. Workshops and special teaching engagements at colleges and universities include residencies at the Oberlin Conservatory (Visiting Assistant Professor), Indiana University (Visiting Faculty–Violin Instructor), Juilliard, the University of Southern California, and the University of Colorado–Boulder.  During the summers, Ms. Andrijeski teaches both baroque violin and dance at several festivals including those in Oberlin (BPI), Madison (MEMF), and Vancouver, BC (BIP).  

In addition to her teaching positions, Ms. Andrijeski maintains an active performance schedule.  She is the Artistic Director of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra; holds principal positions with New York State Baroque (Concertmaster), Quicksilver (Co-Director with baroque violinist Robert Mealy), Apollo’s Fire (Principal Player), Les Délices, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, and The King’s Noyse; and is often invited to play with diverse early music groups across the nation and abroad.

Ms. Andrijeski holds a D.M.A. in Early Music from Case Western Reserve University, an M.M. from Northwestern University, and a B.M. from the University of Denver. A native of Boise, Idaho, Ms. Andrijeski resides with her husband in Cleveland, Ohio. Her recordings can be found on Dorian Recordings, Avie, Koch, Acis Productions, Centaur, and Musica Omnia.
