Anna Barson-cello 2004-2011
bio written 2016
Anna Barson was a member of CVYO for 8 years (2004-2011). After high school, she moved to the East Coast, where she graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance and the NC Music Education teaching license.
While at UNC, Anna performed with several ensembles, including the UNC Symphony, the Chapel Hill Contemporary Music Ensemble, and her own chamber group, the Kaleidoscope Quartet.
Anna credits her pursuit of a music career to the high playing-level, concert experiences, mentorship, and friendships she encountered during her time at CVYO. In addition, the role models of Mrs. Sanchez and Mr. Benson have been one of the largest influences in Anna’s decision to pursue Music Education. Her dream is to provide orchestra education to students who wouldn’t otherwise have access to music.
