Hi, I'm JoAnn Ross and music has been a huge part of my life. I have always loved performing music, both as a singer and instrumentalist, and, beginning in 4th grade, have filled my life with opportunities to perform in choirs, orchestras, concert, marching and dance bands, and chamber music groups.
I have performed leading roles in musical theater and opera, and was a professional soloist and section leader in landmark churches in the Los Angeles area, performing major choral works with orchestra bi-yearly for over 25 years. As winner of their annual competition I have performed with the American River College Orchestra.

Currently I study music privately, attend workshops, and study information from the leading teachers and scientists in the fields of singing and ‘cello.
For the past few years I have sung with Capella Antiqua, an elite choral group and the University Choir under Don Kendrick. Also as a member of Beethoven & Friends, in addition to playing the cello, I sing jazz and chamber music composed for voice with instruments. Our group has recently performed for both the Dixon Chamber and the Pioneer Church Chamber Music Series and at private venues in the Sacramento area.
