Versatile vocalist, Ann Harter sings songs from another time and place. She will captivate you with her amazing palette of vocal colors; at times her voice is a jazzy, tender and sensual bossa nova or a romantic "La vie en rose" chanson Ann sings in a variety of languages and styles, from famous American jazz standards of the 30's, 40's and 50's to international cafe jazz.She has been performing for over fifteen years at events such as, weddings, receptions, parties, retirement communities, restaurants and clubs and is happy to now be part of the Gigmasters family. Ann has her own sound system to provide amplification either outdoor or indoor with sound and volume quality that would fit any occasion and she has the flexibility of using sound tracks for accompaniment. If you would like, and depending on availability, Ann can also be accompanied by guitarist, John Tavano (also a Gigmaster artist), accordionist, David Magliozzi or jazz pianist and accordionist, John Hyde.

Having lived and studied in Beirut, Lebanon; Mexico City, Mexico; and Sao Paulo, Brasil, as well as having a father who was born in Brazil, has given Ann a unique perspective into the languages and cultures of the world; along with a special love of Bossa Nova. She can give your event an international flair. Her Brazilian repertoire includes Jobim favorites such as, Girl from Ipanema, Corcovado, Wave, Triste, Chega de Saudade, Desafinado, and others.

"The Subtle Thread" CD, was released in December of 2014, in which Ann sings the original songs of Tavano/Nicol. Her one-woman show, "Waitin' For The Train To Come In, Songs of WWII" with pianist, John Hyde, was presented to a sold-out audience at the "Actors' Studio" on the North Shore of Boston. "Songs My Mother Taught Me" is Ann's multimedia creation in which she performs a variety of classical music selections and jazz standards. She performed French Chanson with accordionist, David Magliozzi in a "Celebration of Bastille Day" at the Custom House Museum in Newburyport, MA in July of 2017. Ann is on the faculty as voice instructor at the "Musical Suite" music school in Newburyport, MA.

She would be happy to discuss any event that you may be planning. You can find a complete song list on her Gigmaster web page.

Ann Harter performed at our wedding this weekend with John Tavano, who joined her for Bossa Nova guitar playing. She was INCREDIBLE. When I started walking down the aisle her voice captured me and moved almost all our guests to tears. Her voice is beautiful. She sung O Mio Babbino Caro and I was shaking with emotion!! Everyone LOVED it!! We spoke a few times on the phone and many emails to go back and forth with song ideas, where she helped me so much with amazing song choices. Our ceremony was perfect and wouldn't have been the same without her. I would recommend her to anyone. I cannot wait to see the video!!!! Thank you Ann and John for making our day perfect!!

Ann performed for my father's 90th birthday. We were a small audience of 8. She was simply fantastic. She gave a wonderfully intimate and special performance. Her selections of opera and classics such as La Vie en Rose were just lovely. My father, who loves opera, was entranced. As a family, we are so thankful we chose her for this event. She was professional, flexible, warm, and very talented. Thank you, Ann!
