BCA’s Summer Concert Series: Ana May
The BCA Summer Concert Series is an annual celebration of Vermont’s incredible roster of local talent. Every Wednesday and Friday throughout the summer, the Summer Concert Series provides a lunchtime concert in City Hall Park, energizing the downtown district with vibrancy while supporting local musicians.
Alternative, tragic Americana, invocations for peace and judgment – reshaping, with bleeding heart stream of consciousness poems. Anna May has so far released four albums, and is currently working on another.
Anna is a Connecticut native. Her background as a dancer, autodidact, traveler, and pianist feeds her original music, and inspires her to weave wisdom into the music that she makes. Her music is pure memory, meditation, and escapism, streaked with tones of jazz, along with fresh twists on folk music, all while honoring the hope to enhance connection, humility, and joy amongst humans.
There is deep focus on spiritual expansion & fissures in human relationships, running throughout all of Anna’s songs, with an aim to cultivate more authentic and permanent states of joy.
Anna has performed at many notable venues, including the Wildflower Arts & Music Festival, the Boston Arts Festival, Folk Alliance International, crying wolf in nashville, mid city music lounge in los angeles, and many more. Anna’s work has been featured in Medium, Thrive Global, Northern Public Radio, Skope Magazine, New Noise Magazine, and more.

Since 2012, audiences have enjoyed these intimate, free performances, and musicians love connecting directly with local audiences to expand their fanbases. In 2020, to support musicians during the pandemic, they launched a Summer Concert Video Series, producing high-quality videos for each performer. A collaboration with the City’s office of Racial Equity, Inclusion and Belonging helped pull this off.
2021 City Hall Park programming is presented by Pomerleau Real Estate.
