“The Idaho State-Civic Symphony didn’t have to go far to find their new artistic director,” states an unsigned article at television station KPVI (Pocatello, Idaho). “Doctor Julie Sorensen has been serving as the Interim Artistic Director since August of 2017. Sorensen joined the ISU music faculty in the fall of 2011 as an assistant lecturer in music theory, aural skills and music appreciation. In the fall of 2015, she became the applied instructor of flute, where she teaches a strong studio of flutists. She is also the artistic director of the ISU flute choir. As a chamber and orchestral musician, Sorensen performs with the City Creek Winds faculty wind quintet and is the principal flute for the Idaho State-Civic Symphony. She was the orchestra director for the ISU spring production of ‘Into the Woods’ and in the fall of 2012 Sorensen organized and directed the first full-student chamber symphony orchestra at ISU. Sorensen also worked in Lubbock, Texas where she received her Ph.D. in Fine Arts with a specialty in Orchestral Conducting from Texas Tech University.” Sorensen was assistant conductor for the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra and orchestras at Texas Tech University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
