Anna Beth was born into a musical family – her mother taught piano, her father played guitar. As she fell in love with the powerful and unique language of music, Anna found her primary instrument of choice: her voice. Later, she discovered a gift for cello, and a powerful presence on the stage as an actress. Since her childhood, she has performed on stages across the US as a vocalist, actress, and cellist.
She has received training from North Central University with a BA in Theater and Vocal Performance, as well as from the Wesley Balk Opera/Music-Theater Institute (Nautilus Music Theater, St. Paul).
Anna is currently working as an actress, singer, instrumentalist, and teacher throughout the Twin Cities metro area. She was most recently seen in The Boy and Robin Hood with Trademark Theater (http://www.trademarktheater.org/), and in Ghost Quartet with Theatre Elision (https://www.elisionproductions.com/).
