While studying at CSULA, Ana was cast in Hydrogen Jukebox, Die Fledermaus as Rosalinda, and CSULA’s original opera Expectation. She has also been a soloist for choral ensemble works such as Vivaldi’s Gloria, Pergolesi’s Magnificat and Benjamin Britten's Missa Brevis. She has had the honor of partaking in the Angels Vocal Art opera intensive summer program in Los Angeles in 2017, under the direction of Kristoff Van Grysperre.
In her final year as an undergrad student, Ana worked for Saturday Conservatory of Music, a non-profit music school organization, as Lead Vocal Coach and Choral Director. Additionally, she carried on the role of choral librarian and assistant to the choral director for her university. She also became a crew member for the theater department, and student assistant for the College of Arts and Letters office. All while being stage manager and performer for the university’s opera.
Prior to Ana’s studies at CSULA, she decided to embark on a new journey and pursue a music degree at College of the Desert. While at COD, she was cast in the school's production of Les Miserable. For a few semesters, she became an enthusiastic “choral-ographer” for the jazz singer’s ensemble. While attending her community college, Ana was awarded an internship for two years with California Desert Chorale, where she has been invited to sing for several fundraising events, including the most recent benefit concert for Eisenhower Medical Center, Songbirds and Showmen and the 25th anniversary concert for the chorale, Let Music Live!
