While at CSULA, Ana had many opportunities to sing for several causes. She partook in volunteering and singing events for the LA Mission for homeless women. Take Back the Night was a cause for sexually abused and assaulted people in which Ms. Rangel and her colleagues contributed their voices. They also sang for an event at Alhambra city hall, where they held an art exhibition with works from special needs students from a local high school. Touring performances for the "popera", Expectation, took place at the Lancaster Prison for men and at “A Place Called Home” after school program.
Prior to Ana’s studies at CSULA, she decided to embark on a new journey and pursue a music degree at College of the Desert. While at COD, she was cast in the school's production of Les Miserables. For a few semesters, she became an enthusiastic “choral-ographer” for the jazz singer’s ensemble. While attending her community college, Ana was awarded an internship for two years with California Desert Chorale, where she has been invited to sing for several fundraising events, including the annual benefit concerts at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.
Southern California native, Ana Rangel, is a soprano furthering her education by working toward a master’s degree in vocal performance at University of Redlands. She received her bachelor's degree in vocal performance from California State University, Los Angeles. She currently sings at the United Methodist Church in Palm Springs and teaches voice at the Community School of Music and the Arts in Redlands. Ms. Rangel is proud to announce that she will be working alongside Inland Master Chorale as an alto and social media manager, and California Desert Chorale as board member for this upcoming season.
In recent years, her opera talents came to rise. She premiered in her first opera role as Soprano in Philip Glass’ Hydrogen Jukebox. She later debuted as Rosalinda in Strauss’ Die Fledermaus. Additionally, she became cast member and stage manager for an original “popera”, Expectation. Other roles include First Witch from Dido and Aeneas.
