Called "an operatic rarity," a "powerhouse,"
and "a substantive soprano with a gleam on top," Dieltz holds a Bachelor’s of Music from Abilene Christian University and a Master’s of Music from Southern Methodist University. In November 2015, Dieltz won an encouragement award at the Minnesota District Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Singing with Dallas' own Voices of Change in February, 2014, Dieltz was acclaimed by the Dallas Morning News
as “...the substantive soprano, with a thrilling gleam on top.” Beyond her performing career, Dieltz currently teaches vocal performance and piano pedagogy at the Gray School of Music and she is also an Adjunct Professor of Voice at Cedar Valley College, where she also serves as the accompanist for the Cedar Valley Chorus.
"We are so thrilled to be performing alongside soprano, Julie Ann Dieltz, and the many talented students from Booker T. Washington,"
said New Texas Symphony Orchestra founder, artistic director and conductor, Dr. Kathryn D. “Cathy” Brown. "There's nothing quite like the exciting opportunity to perform with so many young, gifted artists and experience this marvelous music through them."
The Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (http://www.dallasisd.org/BTW
) .is nationally recognized as a prototype for successful arts magnet high schools, featuring a curriculum that integrates the arts and academics where students select an arts cluster to major in dance, music, visual arts, or theater. The institution is a National Blue Ribbon Award for Exemplary Education by the U.S. Department of Education.
The New Texas Symphony Orchestra (http://www.ntso.org/
) is an all-volunteer, non-profit performing arts group under the baton of Kathryn D. "Cathy" Brown, who founded the NTSO in 2004 with a two-fold dream that provides amateur musicians an opportunity to play in a full orchestra setting and share the excitement and quality that comes from music performed by those who play purely for the love of it. The 2015-16 concert season entitled "ALL IN!" features four concerts celebrating the music of opera, the ballet, American composers, and the great symphony classics.
