Anais Reno Biography

Anaïs Reno, a 17-year old Drama major at LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts in NYC, was born on November 29, 2003, in Geneva, Switzerland. Despite her very young age, Anaïs has been artistically very active, involved in the performing arts since age 8. After winning the 2016 Forte International Competition’s Platinum Award at Carnegie Hall, Anaïs won Second Place at Michael Feinstein’s Great American Song Book Academy competition in Carmel, Indiana in the summer of 2018, and First Place at the Mabel Mercer Foundation competition, in New York, in March of 2019. In the fall of 2020, Anaïs was presented with the Julie Wilson award.

Studying voice and music since 2013 with Sarah Tolar as a recipient of the Renati-Kaplan Scholarship Program at the 92nd Street Y as well as with her father, a former opera singer, Joan Lader, and Lee Lobenhofer, Anaïs has had a rapidly growing career as a singer with a love for jazz and the Great American Songbook. Since age 10, Anaïs has had the opportunity to sing with highly acclaimed professionals in the field and perform in prominent venues. Thus, she has performed with the NY Philharmonic in David Geffen Hall with her own compositions, Anaïs made her Rose Hall debut in 2019 in Lincoln Center in the Cabaret Convention, and shortly after sang at NJPAC with Billy Stritch, Catherine Russel and Clint Holmes. She has had three solo shows at Feinstein’s 54 Below with Billy Stritch and Tedd Firth, the first being at age 13. She had two shows in May and December of 2019, the latter celebrating the music of Billy Strayhorn/Duke Ellington. August of 2019, she performed with the Birdland Big Band. Additional performances include the Friars Club, the National Arts Club and the Player’s Club. She has also performed several times at Carnegie Hall.

She has released her debut album celebrating the music of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn called “Lovesome Thing”, accompanied by the Emmet Cohen Trio. Peaking at #6, "Lovesome Thing" can still be found in the top 10 on iTunes' Top 40 US Jazz Albums. During the pandemic, she gave two online concerts through the 92 Street Y, with Billy Stritch and Tedd Firth.

Upcoming live performances include a release show at Birdland and concerts in Cleveland and California, dates still to be determined.
