Arizona-based Ann Weiss' amazingly eclectic musical career is truly something to sing about. From her frequent appearances at many of the state's top resort and nightclub venues, to her highly praised recording studio work,
to her supervision of some of the most devoted choirs in the Catholic diocese of Phoenix, Ann's memorable mezzo soprano has brought true joy to fans of secular and spiritual music throughout the Valley of the Sun.
A Wisconsin native, Ann received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and continued her classical training in some of the leading voice studios in Chicago and Boston. Upon her arrival in Arizona, during the heyday of live lounge music, Ann found her talents much in demand at the state's resorts where she performed jazz standards and popular ballads to much acclaim as the vivacious leader of the Ann James Trio. Always a person of deep faith, Ann hardly missed a beat when the resorts went towards recorded music, finding a sacred new home in Catholic music and liturgy. Ann is presently director of Music and Liturgy at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Scottsdale, AZ.
Ann has recorded two CDs: In Your Arms, a stirring collection of sacred music; and Gift of Love, a personal homage to the Christmas season that features both religious and secular selections. Much of the music on the CDs was written by Ann herself.
