She has been very active in Chorus Club, the John Adams Young Composers Program and with BUMP Records. “She is both an artist and a musician. Her projects and compositions show a mature understanding of process, an organizational level beyond the scope of most high school students, and a creative spark that make the work interesting and compelling.” Karen Wells, BHS Music teacher “Anais’s talents as a performer are undeniable. Listening to her music and watching her onstage is a gift. She takes direction with precocious professionalism and consistently searches for deeper meaning in her art work, both in terms of social relevance as well as emotional and spiritual messaging.” Laurel Butler, Youth Arts Manager, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
