The versatility of her vocal range drives her uniquely modern takes on standards ranging from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to contemporary numbers by Radiohead, Cat Power, Janet Jackson, and more.
Whether your event calls for seamless classical background music or a highly curated musical atmosphere crafted from custom covers of songs from various eras, Anni provides a memorable experience. Her flexible hands-on approach, eclectic catalogue, and sensible rates have been celebrated by a range of clients and couples.
Anni played viola during our wedding ceremony last year. We only outlined a general feeling we were going for, and with her enormous musical expertise she was able to find the perfect mix of moving and uplifting music, and it gave me great confidence walking down the aisle to her accompaniment. We also asked her to do a cover of Cat Power's "I Found a Reason" (originally a Velvet Underground song) for our first dance and it was so epically beautiful and moving that it may have been the most romantic moment of the night. We highly recommend working with Anni - she will add a special magic to any event.

We were thrilled when Anni agreed to play viola and sing at our wedding. She accommodated our requests for specific songs for our processional and recessional, and played her own music as our guests transitioned to dinner. She is a talented musician and lovely person who will make any event or ceremony unforgettable.
