who am I?


Anna Freer is a violinist, singer, and poet born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1997. She has Australian and Swiss heritage and is interested in finding new ways to tell stories through music and words, combining the old and the new to create something entirely different. As a violinist, Anna is active both in Australia and overseas. She graduated with First Class Honors from the Elder Conservatorium of Music in 2018 in the class of Keith Crellin and Elizabeth Layton and received many awards and prizes during her time there.

In January 2023 she completed her Masters in Violin Performance at the ZHdK in Zürich in the class of Rudolf Koelman and Sergey Malov, graduating with Distinction. She has been taught in masterclasses by artists such as Pinchas Zukerman, James Ehnes, Andrey Baranov, Hagai Shaham, Michael Barenboim and Tasmin Little.

She has performed in Australia as a soloist andwith Adelaide Baroque, Adelaide Festival
Orchestra, Adelaide Art Orchestra and
Australian Youth Orchestra, and has performed throughout Europe with Ensemble Auf der Suche, Theater Winkelwiese, Zurich Festival Chamber Orchestra and Swiss Youth Classics.

As a concertmaster she has worked under the
batons of James Lowe and Luke Dollman. She is also a passionate singer and has studied with Guila Tiver and Cheryl Pickering. From 2018 to 2020 she was a core member of the award- winning Adelaide Chamber Singers, toured internationally with Australia's national youth choir Gondwana Chorale, and sang in artist Lee Ming-Wei's 'Sonic Blossom' exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.

In 2023 Anna undertook a national tour of Australia which included her ambitious solo concert "The Long Way Home" (a blend of song, poetry and violin) and collaborations as a guest artist in programs with the Luminescence Chamber Singers, members of One Equal Voice, the Holy Name Choir and the Choir of the Shrine of St Anne. Since September 2023, she has been studying for a Master's in Music Pedagogy at the ZHdK in the class of Sergey Malov.

Anna firmly believes in many things, especially the power of music as a gift for both performer and audiences. It is in the spirit of this gift that she wants and strives to live her life.
