I am thrilled to have been chosen as one of the five New York Women Composers members to be part of this concert. “An Alaskan Trilogy,” which is second on the program, is my setting of three poems by Phoebe Newman, whom I met while doing my annual vocal workshop in Ketchikan, AK. I hope you can see it. Anne

Illuminate Women’s Music Presents:
From the Cosmos to the Soul: A Celebration of Women’s Music
Rose Hegele, soprano; Julia Scott Carey, pianist
“Such a worthy bookend for those of us who still cherish 'Born to Be Blue'" –Rex Reed
“It was fascinating to hear Anne Phillips apply her freer, more sophisticated, jazzier style to standards, and her own songs. And her freer, sophisticated, jazzier style is in full display on this outstanding recording.”
–Ron Weinstock, Jazz & Blues Report
“Phillips adds thoughtful anecdotes that help the audience – and now listeners – understand her history in a beautiful, personal way. Her original gems feel comfortable alongside classics by Mel Torme and The Gershwins. They are even more emotionally gripping.” –Jonathan Widran, The JW Vibe
"Where has this captivating performer been all our lives?"–Hollywood Variety/Reuters
Anne tells her story in the Fall 2017 issue of the International Alliance of Women in Music Journal.
