In "You & the Night & the Music: An Evening of Musical Imports & Exports," Anna presented an international musical scrapbook and audience favorites from her live appearances and her PBS special "A Salon with Anna Bergman." From the American songbook, Anna included selections by Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, George & Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Jerry Herman, Maury Yeston and Adam Guettel. Raised abroad as the daughter of an American diplomat and an actress, she pays tribute to her European roots with Parisian chanson, Viennese operetta and Italian opera, and pays homage to artists who inspired her such as Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich.
Anna enjoys an international career performing in concerts, cabaret, theatre, opera, music festivals, with symphony orchestras, on television and recordings.
