Julie Zhu attended Yale University, where she double-majored in mathematics and art. As a freshman, she added the carillon to these passions, having successfully auditioned for the Yale Guild of Carillonneurs. After graduating, she pursued further carillon studies at the Royal Carillon School “Jef Denyn” in Mechelen, Belgium, under the Belgian-American Education Fellowship. She also joined the North American Guild of Carillonneurs. In 2014, she became the first carillon fellow at Bok Tower Gardens in Florida.
After she came back to the United States, she played carillon regularly at Rockefeller Chapel in Chicago, where she was an economic consultant. Now, she lives in New York City and is studying for a master in fine arts degree in painting at Hunter College.
