Anna Maria Mendieta - Harpist

Anna Maria enjoys a busy career as a soloist, orchestral musician, recording artist and teacher.  She is the principal harpist with the Sacramento Philharmonic and has performed as a soloist and as a member with many symphony orchestras and chamber music groups across the country, with praises from The American Symphony Orchestra League as "an exceptional and charismatic soloist".  Anna Maria has appeared on TV, movies, NPR, and the Emmy Awards, and performed for celebrities, dignitaries and heads of state; however, her greatest joy is to play the harp for our Lord, Our Lady, and our beautiful Catholic Church.

Anna Maria performed at all Masses and events with Pope Benedict XVI at the 2011 World Youth Day.
