Classical Guitar

About

Innovative French guitarist and composer Julien Xuereb strives to make every performance a unique experience. His compositional style ingeniously blends elements of Classical, Jazz, and Middle Eastern music. Tim Smith, critic of the Baltimore Sun, described his works as “Subtly nuanced compositions.”

Julien's recent appearances on stage include performances at the TEDx MidAtlantic Conference, the Ford Convention Center in George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Julien has been featured by media outlets such as PBS, the Baltimore Sun, WBAL-TV, and Maryland Public Television (MPT) for his involvement in community outreach. In particular, when Julien was still a student at the Peabody Institute, he became the first Musician-in-Residence at the Springwell Senior Living Community. He gave daily performances and lectures to members of the community and visiting guests in exchange for room and board. In 2016, Julien received the Peabody Dean's Incentive Grant to expand the program to other retirement facilities. The Musician-in-Residence is now one of the most competitive and sought after programs at Peabody.

As a composer, Julien began working on his first solo album, Introspection, in 2006 and subsequently completed it in 2014. The ten-piece album, released in May 2015, outlines aspects of the human experience including: time, death, love, remembrance, and humanity’s place in the universe. The Atlantic Guitar Quartet premiered one of his latest works, Dialogues for Guitar Quartet, in 2015 at the Engineers Club in Baltimore, MD. Julien is now actively working on his second solo album for classical guitar. One of his latest composition, Through the Telescope, depicts the experience of looking at several distant objects in space. The inspiration was drawn from a unique outdoor performance scenario in which Julien played guitar, and the residents of the Springwell Senior Living Community observed stars through a telescope.

Under the guidance of Maestro Julian Gray, Julien Xuereb graduated from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University with a Master of Music degree specializing in Guitar Performance and Pedagogy in 2015, and a Graduate Performance Diploma in 2017.
