Julia Remour is a 4th grader year at Riverdale Elementary School in Port Byron, IL. She has studied with Melinda Menner on violin for a year; Maureen on voice for 8 months. Julia’s big accomplishment is that she was awarded the roles of Young Cosette and Young Eponine in Quad City Music Guild’s production of the Award-Winning Musical, “Les Misérables.” Her musical goals are that she wants to keep singing at Quad City Music Guild after her experience with “Les Misérables.” Her mother, Rachel, noted that throughout the production, Julia has never wanted to leave rehearsals because she was having so much fun! In “Les Misérables” Julia played the role of Young Eponine during the first weekend of the show, and will play Young Cosette during the second and final weekend. She shares the roles with Morgan McCartney (who is also making her QC Music Guild debut with Les Mis!) Julia says Morgan has become her new best friend due to their experiences at QC Music Guild!

She tried out for “Les Mis” because of encouragement from her voice teacher, Maureen Holmes. This was Julia’s first-ever audition ever for a musical, and first role in a musical! Julia says she really likes singing and listening to music because it makes her happy and has helped her make new friends. Julia loves her music lessons with Maureen and Melinda saying, “They’re the perfect mix of professionalism, fun, and encouragement.” Her favorite musician is Idina Menzel and favorite music to listen and sing along to: “Pitch Perfect,”“Rent,” and last but definitely not least... “Frozen!” Julia’s hobbies, interest: “I’m very crafty and like sewing.” She loves playing outside and playing with her little brother, Connor. She is also a state-qualifying gymnast! Great work, Julia!
