Join us for a dynamic performance by an eclectic crew of Anne Weiss's music and choir students! This is a wonderful opportunity to support Artichoke Music through your donation, and participate in an uplifting community performance highlighting the talents of students of Artichoke's long-time beloved and talented music teacher Anne Weiss.
Anne Weiss is a nationally-touring folk and blues singer-songwriter whose home base is here in Portland.

Anne's teaching style is student-centered, building on the strengths and interests of each individual student.
