Celebrating Three Centuries of People and Pianos



An accomplished piano soloist, ensemble musician, and accompanist, Ana Cervantes was the recipient of the Fulbright Garcia-Robles Award in 1999, which gave her the opportunity to live in Mexico and pursue her interest in teaching and performing Mexican contemporary music. She will be appearing at the 24th Chanticleer Summer Music Festival in Indiana, summer 2000.

Praised by the Newark Star-Ledger as an "emotional...physical player...with extraordinary touch," Cervantes has taught and performed throughout the United States, including several national premiers of such pieces as Frederico Ibarra's Third Piano Sonata and Pilar Ortega's Sonata para Piano.

Cervantes released a debut CD in January 1999, entitled Amor de la Danza, which also contained several world premiers. Cervantes has collaborated with other artists "from violinists to poets" to create new types of programs for all audiences alike.

A graduate of Bard College, Cervantes has served on Rider University's Westminster Conservatory artist faculty and is currently a member of the adjunct arts faculty of Hightown's Peddie School, in addition to independent teaching in the Princeton area.

Ana Cervantes will be presenting a recital and master class with a focus on the music of Mexico and Central America on November 3 and 4, 2000.
