Her theatrical prowess includes captivating performances in Call Me Madame, Can Can, Shenandoah, Oliver!, and Annie!

A powerhouse on and off the stage, Annamarie has taken her passion to new heights, collaborating with the Tidewater Winds Big Band in Virginia Beach and the TomKats Jazz Orchestra in St. Pete. Her mission? Bringing the timeless allure of Big Band and the Standard Songbook to audiences far and wide!
