Since the early 1990’s, Anne’s joy of music has drawn her into composing, singing and performing throughout Ontario and Canada. As a vocalist, Anne’s interpretations of jazz standards are uniquely delivered with insight, passion and poise.
In collaboration with accomplished musicians, Anne has performed at the TD Ottawa and Montreal Jazz Festivals; headlined at concerts at the National Arts Centre (NAC), Centrepointe and Great Canadian Theatres in Ottawa; telethons for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO)and the Ottawa Heart Institute; celebration of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations in Ottawa; and numerous private corporate events.
Anne has been particularly inspired by the benefit concerts and fundraisers she has headlined for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). Anne was honoured to have written and performed the theme song for the 75th anniversary of the CNIB.
Anne has released 2 albums of her original music (Anne Wagner) – Eagle’s Landing (1993) and I Want to Know (1995). In addition, she has recorded many jazz classics live in concert and in the studio.
Anne is currently performing at various jazz and blues venues and at public and private events throughout the Ottawa region.
