Women Give Taos is thrilled to host a fall concert, featuring AnnaMaria Cardinalli, a world class opera singer, classical guitarist, and recording artist. Please read on to learn more about AnnaMaria’s musical background.
AnnaMaria has had an extraordinary career with the guitar since an early age. An 18th-generation native of Santa Fe, NM, she grew up absorbed in the proud Spanish colonial culture of her father, and in one of the rare flamenco enclaves in the United States. Making her solo recital debut at the Kennedy Center at the age of 14, she quickly went on to become a popular performer in U.S. Embassies abroad and even a favorite entertainer of the Spanish Royal Family—a rare compliment for an American guitarist.
Her programs are typically highly entertaining evenings of repertoire that embody the classical romance and gypsy soul of southern Spain. Unlike the interpretive sense that prevails in the male-dominated guitar world, AnnaMaria’s playing is marked by a distinctly feminine sensuality. She makes the guitar truly an extension of herself.
While typically a recitalist, she enjoys performing the major guitar concerti—particularly Rodrigo’s iconic Concierto de Aranjuez—with symphony organizations. She continues a prolific recording career with over 12 albums to her name, has maintained a yearly U.S. concert tour schedule for over a decade, and is also a feature in modern media, bringing beloved Spanish classical music to a wide global audience. Her solo recitals aired on the worldwide cable network EWTN reach a broadcast audience of over 250 million homes.
