What to Expect

Ana Caban began her music training during elementary school.. Her first instrument was the soprano recorder and she also was taught how to sing in the school choir. After graduating into 7th grade at age 12, she applied and assisted Escuela Libre de Music in Hato Rey Puerto Rico (school established by Pablo Casals). There she was discovered to have perfect pitch ability. She never met the great cellist Pablo Casals but learning about his residence and good reputation in the island she decided to pick up the cello. In 1993, she auditioned and was selected to perform for world famous cellist Yo-Yo-Ma in a masterclass which took place in Melbourne Florida. After his masterclass she decided to study cello more seriously so she continued her college courses graduating in 1998 from the Florida State University School of Music. Shortly later that year, she moved to Portugal and traveled to the city of Madrid in Spain where she joined a local chamber orchestra & performed at Portuguese weddings. During her stay in Europe she traveled to the city of Madrid where she studied with Maria de Macedo (Assistant professor of Janos Starker and Pierre Fournier.) In 2008, Ana moved to the state of Nevada. She enrolled at University of Nevada Las Vegas for graduate level courses and once at UNLV, she was reminded again of her perfect pitch ability. In 2011 during her stay in Las Vegas, she joined Jerry Brookings who was Michael Jackson’s bass guitar player from the Jackson 5 band. She assisted him as cellist member of his jazz /mow town band. Ana has been performing as background cellist for wedding, birthdays and other requested type of events in which an advanced cellist with classical training are requested & has joined a number of local symphony orchestras everywhere she has traveled to.
Additional Booking Notes
I only require that my performance be at a place with good acoustics & good lighting away from wild life. I ask that the hiring party to provide me with a microphone for the present time. I do plan to add a microphone to my cello but I'm holding back on that right now until I can decide which cello to settle down with since I will be upgrading my current cello to a new one at a near future.
List of songs upon request.
Influences & Inspiration
I love the music at the Circus de Soleil Shows & violinist Lindsey Sterling's videos. My favorite rock band is the 2 Cellos. I also enjoy listening to legendary performers such as Yo-Yo-Ma & Janos Starker as well as other recording artist. I listen in order to improve & develop my own sound.
