Cellist Anne Lerner-Wright completed her Bachelor of Arts in Music at Northwestern University as a cello performance major after having spent 3 years as a Spanish Literature major at Bryn Mawr College. She has been performing as a cellist in the Bay Area since 1989, when she moved from her native Chicago to study with Irene Sharp at the San Francisco Conservatory, where she earned a Master of Music in Cello Performance. Anne has performed with many Bay Area orchestras and is a sought-after chamber musician and performer of contemporary music. An equally important part of Anne’s musical life is music education.
