Julie Reiber

vocalist

Ms. Reiber’s versatility allows her to play a wide range of roles and sing in many styles. Classically trained with a BFA in Vocal Performance and a minor in Acting from Western Washington University, Ms. Reiber has the ability to belt out such roles as Maureen in the National Tour of RENT, perform more legit roles such as Rose Stopnick in Tony Kushner’s Caroline or Change at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN and sooth audiences with her sultry jazz voice as Betty Haynes in the classic White Christmas at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. Other favorite regional performances include the quirky, outlandish Connie Bradshaw in the World Premiere performance of Tales of the City at A.C.T. in San Francisco singing the music of the Scissor Sisters as well as Cathy in Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, Turn Back O Man in Godspell at the Paper Mill Playhouse and Amneris in AIDA (Henry Award Best Supporting Actress) at The Arvada Center.

Ms. Reiber has performed as a soloist with symphonies across the world including the Korean Symphony in the Olympic Hall in Seoul, Korea. She also wowed audiences with her stunning rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at Dodgers Stadium.

As a singer/songwriter Ms. Reiber has conceived and performed numerous solo shows in New York, but most recently her greatest solo achievement to date is releasing her Debut Solo Album Love Travels released in April of 2012. Recorded at the legendary Avatar Studios, the album is a fusion of Broadway, pop, folk, and R&B/soul.
