Julie Stewart - Lafin

Scottish-born Julie Stewart has played principal flute with the Stuttgart Chamber since 2002. She has also performed as guest principal with various other orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic orchestra, the Radio Orchestra of Saarbrücken, the Stuttgart Philharmonic and with the orchestra of La Scala, Milan.

Since her soloist debut with the London Symphony Orchestra in 1997, Julie enjoys an extensive and varied musical life giving solo recitals and chamber music around Europe. Performances with the achord quintett, ensemble Villa Musica and Ensemble 94 have allowed her to develop a keen interest in the field of chamber music, where she has performed both as a flautist and pianist.

She was taught by Paul-Edmund Davies and Averil Williams at the Guildhall School of music and Drama, London where she was awarded the Guildhall school prize for woodwind, the Yamaha prize for woodwind and the Charles Leggat prize for flute. She later continued her studies in Germany with Jean-Claude Gerard and Sir James Galway.
