Anne Cowherd grew up singing. As the daughter of two music teachers, there was always some kind of music playing in the house. Her mother, a professional singer, gives piano and voice lessons, while her father is a middle school band director, composer and symphony trombonist. Anne fell in love with performing at a very early age, singing to her great-grandmother from a step stool before every Sunday lunch. However, her first real onstage experience was playing The Dormouse in a production of Alice in Wonderland. She continued to perform every chance she got — in choirs, at churches, in community theater, as well as being a soloist with various jazz ensembles. While her studies led her to a classical voice degree, her first love has always been singing jazz.
These days she performs throughout New York City, and is a former member of The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers. She has sung with these groups across America and in Canada, Japan, Uruguay and Bermuda. With the choir and the singers, she has performed twice on the Fox News Channel and most recently at President Obama’s 2013 inauguration ceremony in Washington, DC. In 2015, she was thrilled to share the stage with Jon Cowherd and Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band at the Carson Center in her hometown of Paducah, KY.
