„Julio has a very contagious temperament that is transferred to the orchestra and singers. He shows a very unique body language, his plastic interpretations derive from his profound knowledge of the score. He is a talent that we are convinced that we will hear a lot from him in the future.”

Lothar Zagrosek, Conductor and President of the Jury of the German Conducting Award.

“Julio, Wow! What a performer! 
He was the real deal in this competition. He had such energy, the confidence to just stop conducting, to make these little gestures that actually say so much more than simply “we are going to do 1,2,3,4”. 
Julio was always in charge. He did everything without music, with this contact and direct communication. Towards the end of his rehearsal he was quite determined that time should be taken at this specific point in the piece; he is very clear about what he wants and he brings it across very effectively. 
He also has a very good fluid technique. 
He is experienced enough to be spontaneous, the gestures were different on every repetition, you just got the impression he was going with the feeling of the performance, and using the small audience that we had in order to make something out of each of those pieces"

„The absolute highlight of the evening was the Sextet of „Cosi fan tutte“, conducted by Julio Garcia Vico. Perfectly balanced vocal lines, precisely worked out orchestral parts, the magic of the opera appeared [...] with "Freitschütz" he proved that he also mastered romantic opera.”
