Bassist Anne Trout performed, recorded and toured with most of the prominent early ensembles in North America for many years. She is especially proud to be a long-time member of Aston Magna and to have been an active member of Handel & Haydn Society during the Hogwood years. Often praised for her spirited and stylish continuo playing, she is sought not only for her experience but for her interest in new collaborations which this season include Blue Hill Bach, Vivaldi Project and Four Nations. Anne serves on the faculties of Longy School of Music of Bard College and Boston College. She has recently been named baroque consultant for L'Archet Concert Group and performed on its series this season with the American Classical Orchestra.
