Quick-fire questions for our Saturday receptionist, Annie – singer, pianist, Streisand enthusiast.
When did you start working at the Music Place?
Less than a year ago; I had piano lessons here first and then segued into desk duties!
What do you like most about working at the music place?
Well, I enjoy talking to new people and I feel at home in an environment where everyone has come to learn music.
How did you get into music yourself?
I’ve never not done music, it’s always been part of my life. I started going to Stagecoach when I was four so I can’t really remember a time when I wasn’t involved in music!
What kind of music are you listening to now?
Musical theatre mostly.
Ah, a thesp. And what are your favourite musicals?
Groundhog day, rent and funny girl.
Who would you say are your biggest musical influences?
Probably Barbara Streisand, she’s got an incredible voice which I aspire to match and her stage presence is second to none.
A very thespy answer. If you could learn a new instrument, what would it be ?
Probably the drums because I feel music is pretty empty without a beat.
Interesting. And finally, if you had to choose your spirit animal, what do you reckon it would be?
A penguin, because I have happy feet!

And that’s Annie!
Have a lovely week everyone !
