Trained in piano, viola and chamber music at the Conservatoire d'Aix-en-Provence, then in singing at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Lyon, Julia Wischniewski has sung under Tugan Sokhiev, Jérémie Rhorer, Joël Suhubiette, Emmanuel Krivine, Louis Langrée, Jérôme Corréas and William Christie. Resolutely Mozartean, she has toured for two years with pianofortist Giorgio Tabacco, performing the complete Lieder, the Requiem, the Mass in C and the role of the Countess (The Marriage of Figaro) under the direction of Pierre Bleuse.

She regularly appears in the virtuoso Baroque repertoire, performing cantatas by Handel and Vivaldi with ensembles such as Les Arts Florissants, Pulcinella, Les Paladins, Le Concert d'Astrée and the Stuttgart Baroque Orchestra. Julia Wischniewski is an advocate of all repertoires, and particularly of new works, commissioning with Ophélie Gaillard the piece Intrépides by Alexandros Markeas, or playing the role of the Press Attaché in Brice Pauset's Wonderful Deluxe at the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg and the Rotterdam Opera. Opera credits include Micaëla (Carmen) at Biarritz, La Chatte, La Théière et la Chauve-souris (L'Enfant et les Sortilèges) at Deauville, La Phrygienne (Dardanus) at Caen, Lille and Dijon and, more recently, Ninetta (La Périchole) at Opéra Comique.

During the 2023-2024 season, she sings the roles of a captive (Médée) at Madrid's Teatro Real and Eurydice (La Descente d'Orphée aux Enfers) at the Opéra de Tours. She also appeared with the Quatuor Béla at Angers Nantes Opera, in a recital of Britten's Illuminations and Mozart's concert aria "Ah se in ciel". She has taken part in numerous recordings in 2023, including her first disc of previously unreleased Italian solo cantatas, "Così Amor mi fa languir" (Evidences Classics).
