Cellist Julian Kosanovic knew that playing classical cello wasn’t the only thing she wanted to do. She composed and improvised as early as age 11, taught herself piano at age 12, and adopted the accordion and viola some time after that. Before attending Portland State University, Julian played with the Corvallis Youth Symphony from 2005-2009 (who played with Pink Martini in 2005) and the Corvallis Camerata from 2006-2009 (who toured northern Italy in 2008). She has also played with Graham Reynolds and Classical Revolution PDX, Parenthetical Girls, Raz, and Anna Heifetz. Currently, she plays with the PSU Symphony and will graduate with a Bachelor’s in Music Performance in 2014. Julian enjoys playing and composing in contemporary-classical, jazz, Latin, Persian, and Russian (with local band Vragi Naroda) styles.
