Julia Okrusko


2367 plays, 12 songs on radio, from Lithuania

Winner of numerous violin competitions in the U.S.A. and abroad, Julia Okrusko has performed in Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Turkey as a soloist and member of chamber ensembles. Since her arrival in USA in 2005, Julia became one of the most sought-after violinists in New England, and has collaborated with all local orchestras - including Boston-based Video Game Orchestra. It was the VGO's "Back to the Future" project (2011) and working under distinguished composers Alan Silvestri, Lucas Vidal, and Wataru Hokoyama, that inspired Julia to start composing cinematic fantasy music for violin and orchestra. In 2013, Julia's self-released album "Legends: Fantasy Violin" received tremendous support and full funding on Kickstarter, and tracks from the album, "Legends" and "Spellbound Dream", were nominated for Best Orchestral/Instrumental 2013 and Best New Age/Ambient 2013 by Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
