Women's History Month Profiles: Julie Landsman

Women’s History Month Profiles: Julie Landsman

Julie Landsman

This year, for Women’s History Month, we’re taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women’s history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Julie Landsman of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM).

Julie Landsman, a horn player and member of AFM locals 802 (New York City) and 47 (Los Angeles), is a distinguished performing artist and educator. At a time when women rarely held principal positions, Landsman was the first woman to win a position in The Metropolitan Opera’s Met Orchestra brass section in 1985, in part due to the existence of fully “blind” auditions. An outstanding role model for her students, many who now hold prominent positions in major orchestras across the country, she has had a most impressive award-winning career.
