BIO:
Anna Maria Mendieta enjoys a busy career as a soloist, orchestral musician, recording artist and teacher. She is the principal harpist with the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera and has performed with orchestras and chamber music groups across the country and abroad including the San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Ballet, Russian National Orchestra, the Russian State Ballet, Orquesta Sinfonica y Coro JMJ (Madrid), with reviews published internationally by The American Symphony Orchestra League as an "exceptional and charismatic soloist". She has performed for Pope Benedict XVI, President Clinton, President Gorbachev, the King and Queen of Spain; for National Hispanic Week in Washington D.C., World Youth Day events in Madrid, and for a special concert for the Pope at the Vatican in Rome.

With many albums to her credit, Anna Maria has appeared in movies, television, NPR, and the Emmy Awards. She has performed with celebrities including Frederica von Stade, Josh Groban, Frank Sinatra Jr., Johnny Mathis, Olivia Newton John, Moody Blues, Fernando de la Mora, Charlotte Church, and Barry Manilow, who calls her his "favorite harpist".

Her creation of "Tango del Cielo" (Tango from Heaven), a national touring concert-show, is especially entertaining and is the focus of a documentary film. When she's not pulling strings, Anna Maria is out on the dance floor as a part of the show!

Amazing...God gifted artist. Everything about Anna Maria is so special, her movement of hands to the strings of the harp is a heavenly dance. She has such grace as she plays...my family and I were overwhelmed with the beauty she brought to the mass. The Lord was surely pleased...????

Anna Maria is much more than 5 stars can measure...a true professional and incredibly talented...to say that her music complements an event is not accurate because she makes the event!...Anna Maria is beyond compare and truly made my daughter's wedding ceremony perfect...everyone was awestruck and is still talking about her...in fact the people at Mont La Salle in Napa will be recommending her to future couples for their wedding...really could never thank her enough...highly recommend her to anyone looking for an astounding musician...and she is an absolute must for the perfect wedding!
