Born in Krakow, Poland, Anna moved to Toronto with her family when she was 6. With a violin virtuoso for a grandfather and talented parents who sang and danced as a part of a popular Polish folk ensemble, Anna was predestined for a career in music. Her parents made sure to expose her to all aspects of the arts and sought to impress upon her the importance of an education. Her musical palette ran the gambit from traditional Polish tunes to Tina, Mariah, Whitney and of course Michael Jackson—young Anna would grab a hairbrush and entertain friends. At age 11, realizing just how serious she was about singing, Anna implored her parents to sign her up for lessons with famed vocal coach Ian Garret (Shania Twain) of the Canadian Academy Of Vocal Music.
Anna Cyzon will be performing with her band D/Vision on the Sobieski Vodka Main Stage on Saturday at 8:30.
