Ana made my wedding so special and emotive. I really recommend her to play in your events! Great artist!

The sound and playing of Ana Victoria has made me so much more interested in cello playing and its repertoire. I was very moved by her musicality, control of the instrument, sound and ability to be so artistic while controlling every other aspects of the instrument. Also, her ability to teach is something that I have personally been amazed by. Ana Victoria has a lot of knowledge about cello playing and many tips and tricks that she is able to teach. The way she understands music and is able to teach it to a student is amazing.
