Versatile in all styles of music, she is happy to perform for you, whether it be a full multimedia concert-show, film, touring, recording sessions, corporate events, background music, or a private party for two!

TOURS: Anna Maria Mendieta often performs on tour as a soloist and with her ensembles around the country and abroad and may be performing near you! Please inquire if she is in your area, where she would gladly perform for you! Please note: Gigmasters calendar does not reflect her concert calendar or private event schedule, so please inquire regarding your date.

Ms. Mendieta belongs to 3 Musicians Unions: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. Because she performs on tour, she is very comfortable traveling to any destination.

BIO:
Anna Maria Mendieta enjoys a busy career as a soloist, orchestral musician, recording artist and teacher. She is the principal harpist with the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera and has performed with orchestras and chamber music groups across the country and abroad including the San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Ballet, Russian National Orchestra, the Russian State Ballet, Orquesta Sinfonica y Coro JMJ (Madrid), with reviews published internationally by The American Symphony Orchestra League as an "exceptional and charismatic soloist". She has performed for Pope Benedict XVI, President Clinton, President Gorbachev, the King and Queen of Spain; for National Hispanic Week in Washington D.C., World Youth Day events in Madrid, and for a special concert for the Pope at the Vatican in Rome.

With many albums to her credit, Anna Maria has appeared in movies, television, NPR, and the Emmy Awards. She has performed with celebrities including opera singer Frederica von Stade, Josh Groban, Frank Sinatra Jr., Johnny Mathis, Olivia Newton John, Moody Blues, Fernando de la Mora, Charlotte Church, and Barry Manilow, who calls her his "favorite harpist".

Her creation of "Tango del Cielo" (Tango from Heaven), a national touring concert-show, is especially entertaining and is the focus of a documentary film. When she's not pulling strings, Anna Maria is out on the dance floor as a part of the show!

Anna Maria is much more than 5 stars can measure...a true professional and incredibly talented...to say that her music complements an event is not accurate because she makes the event!...Anna Maria is beyond compare and truly made my daughter's wedding ceremony perfect...everyone was awestruck and is still talking about her...in fact the people at Mont La Salle in Napa will be recommending her to future couples for their wedding...really could never thank her enough...highly recommend her to anyone looking for an astounding musician...and she is an absolute must for the perfect wedding!

I cannot recommend Anna Maria more highly. She and her sister transformed a very sorrowful funeral into a beautiful celebration of life. I was so amazed by her professionalism and performance that I hired her again four months later. A wonderful musician with a beautiful soul.

Performers arrived on time, and were very accommodating to last minute shuffling of venue. Performance started/ended right on schedule, allowed for a smooth transition to the next event. Musicians and dancers were extremely talented and engaged the audience fully. Asking the audience to dance Tango and teaching a mini-lesson during the performance, made for a very intimate moment that drew in everyone. We enjoyed it immensely - it was an exquisite high-class performance. Definitely, Tango del Cielo is Broadway quality throughout. Got lots of accolades and great comments from attendees. Highly recommended show.

Our family and friends were so happy. You knew exactly what to do. And I really appreciated you taking the time to prepare the music selection with me and really trying to understand our overall vision. You're the best. Thank you GigMasters for existing as a forum for me to find Anna Maria!

Anna Maria guided us in the process of song selection as we had requested and also played contemporary selections she was not familiar with, and played them perfectly! Our guest were stunned by her performance and continue to ask how we found her and wanted more information about her. Her experience and performances of past clients are an exciting conversation with friends and family. It is quite obvious to see and hear why she will most definitely continue to be our family’s Harpist. We are overjoyed to look back at the videos of our event knowing what a huge difference she made that day. She’s definitely the talk of the town in a very good way. Thanks again Anna.
