Anne Case is a musician dedicated to social action through music. She joined Harmony Project of Ventura County as its Director in August of 2017. Most recently, she coordinated and taught in Charlotte Symphony’s El Sistema-inspired program, paving the way for program expansion.

Anne achieved her Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance at Oberlin Conservatory and subsequently studied music education and string pedagogy at Indiana University, Bloomington.
