A multi-platinum-selling singer, composer, lyricist, pianist, and actress, she received a Tony Award nomination as "best featured actress in a musical" for her work in Swing, won the Theatre World Award for "Outstanding Broadway Debut," and won 15 MAC Awards from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs. 

The writer and singer of the theme to the television series, The Nanny, she has composed more than 250 songs for television, Broadway, and Off Broadway and for many well known singers, such as Barbara Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Patti LuPone, Michael Feinstein, Blossom Dearie, and her sister, Liz Callaway.

"Ann is one of the leading interpreters of the 'great American songbook,'" said Maestro Gordon Roberts, artistic director of the 175-voice chorus.  "That is why our chorus is so happy that she will be headlining our "Street of Dreams" tribute to Broadway.

Street of Dreams will feature favorites such as "It's a Grand Night for Singing," "Fascinating Rhythm," "Blues in the Night," "I've Never Been in Love Before, "People," and "Look to the Rainbow."

"Bailey Hall is a beautiful performance space," Roberts noted. "Although it's in another city, it's actually just a 10 or 15-minute drive from our home venue at Fort Lauderdale's Sunshine Cathedral."
