Annie Ball is a local, award-winning concert pianist who has performed and managed numerous projects which present Classical music in unusual and unique ways including story telling concerts (Beer Burgers and Beethoven, Fantasy Dreams Myths and Magic with Malcolm Green), Putting "Music on the Menu" for the Semibreve Supper Club (Newcastle EAT Festival), Live piano with Yoga and lying down Concerts (with Samantha Coe Yoga) and the globally recognised Classical Revolution Series.
During the COVID lockdown, Annie had the unique opportunity of working with the Internationally renowned cellist, Katie Tertell, who's tours were cancelled due to COVID meaning that both musicians were grounded in their local village; Clara Vale. They embarked on a new project together combining cello, accordion and voice, championing contemporary female composers and creating a successful, COIVID Safe, outdoor concert tour across rural locations in the North East.
