Ann has performed and presented in 16 countries on 4 continents, including Sala Verdi in Milan, Italy; the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland; and Trinity College in Oxford, England. In demand as a collaborative pianist, Ann’s performed chamber music with members of the Minnesota Orchestra and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, as well as with Martha Councell-Vargas, flute; Preston Duncan, saxophone; and Clara Osowski, mezzo-soprano.
