Anna Bigland-Pritchard is a singer-songwriter, soprano, voice educator, arts digital marketer, and Expressive Arts Therapy student based in Lekwungen Territory (Victoria, BC). Shaped by the cultures and land of southern England, rural Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, and Vancouver Island, Anna is passionate about the intersections of climate justice, decolonization, community-building, intersectional feminism, queerness, and the performing arts. Anna is dedicated to using whatever medium possible to empower creative, inspiring, resonant communities.
Anna has a BMus from Canadian Mennonite University, a PostBacc Diploma in Performance from The University of Manitoba, and is currently studying expressive arts therapy at the WHEAT Institute. She is also studying singing with Nancy Argenta and Ingrid Attrot, which allows her to dive deeper into authentic expression, and thinking about how singing is a tool for mind-body connection and healing.
Anna believes art must be activism, and that music is a tool for both self-care and social change. Outside of performing oratorio, opera, musicals, comedic musical sketch shows, and sharing her own sad-girl aesthetic indie-pop music, Anna enjoys snacks, naps, and smashing the patriarchy.
Whether through songwriting, performance, or community music leadership, Anna is here on earth to deeply influence and interrupt culture with the sneaky power of creativity.
