As a soloist with the ASO, Julia has played Vivaldi’s Piccolo Concerto in C major twice, and in 2013 gave the SA premiere of Australian composer Paul Stanhope’s Piccolo Concerto.

In 2017 Julia was a guest artist at the Australian Flute Festival in Brisbane, where she gave a joint piccolo recital with the Piccoloists of the MSO and SSO.  In 2018-19 she played Principal Piccolo in the Gothenburg Opera Orchestra in Gothenburg, Sweden.
