Julia Randel recently completed a PhD at Harvard, with a dissertation on Stravinsky's collaboration with the choreographer George Balanchine. She holds masters degrees in tuba performance from the University of Kentucky, and in musicology from the University of Georgia, as well as a BA in literature from Yale. Before joining the Hope faculty, she taught at Harvard and the University of Georgia.

She has presented her work at national meetings of the American Musicological Society and Society of Dance History Scholars, and at a Balanchine centennial symposium, and has published research on Verdi and on Sephardic song traditions. Research interests include 19th- and 20th-century opera and ballet, women in music, and modern composers' uses of early music.
