A sought-after solo artist and chamber musician, Ana seeks out unusual ensemble combinations that integrate the different sound possibilities of the saxophone. This passion has led her to found SOLARTE, a contemporary/classical quintet (voice, guitar, saxophone, piano and dancer) that champions works by Spanish and Latin American composers, and Xelana Duo, together with bassoonist Alexander Davis.
Recent career highlights include a performance at Symphony Space with the renowned Kronos Quartet in collaboration with the ÆON Music Ensemble for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Summit. Other performances include appearances in Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Spectrum, Le Poisson Rouge, Miller Theatre, Instituto Cervantes NY, and Auditorio Baluarte in Pamplona (Spain). Ana has also been a featured artist in prestigious music festivals such as the Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival, the Tribeca New Music Festival, Make Music New York, Xlassical, New York Composers Circle, Noel Pointer Foundation, Locrian Chamber Series, NYC’s Rising Stars Gala, and PAM’15 Pamplona Acción Musical. Ana's artistry can be heard in several recordings of new works by eminent composers, including John Lissauer (Allard Variations), Rob Karpay (Trendwave), Alex Burtzos (The Revivalist), and Jeff Scott (A Passista Mais Linda).
