Julian Bertet is in middle school in Los Angeles. Julian’s fourth-grade teacher discovered his singing talent and begged his mother “not to leave his voice on a shelf.” In response to this pleading, Julian auditioned and was accepted into the prestigious Los Angeles Children’s Chorus led by Anne Tomlinson. Julian quickly moved into the Concert Level of the choral group. As a member of the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, Julian has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in its production of Orff’s Carmina Burana, John Williams’ “Dry Your Tears, Africa” from Amistad, and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Julian was also a street urchin in the Los Angeles Opera’s 2013 production of Bizet’s Carmen. That same year, Julian was a Knabe or “boy spirit” cover in the Los Angeles Opera’s 2013 production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Last month, Julian performed in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s production of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis as a boy soloist. Julian has performed with the choir in Utah, England, and Germany.
