Anna Rabinowicz is a flautist from Melbourne who is in her first year of study at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) with Alison Mitchell. She recently graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Performance from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, where she studied with the highly-acclaimed flautist Virginia Taylor.

Whilst at the Queensland Conservatorium, Anna enjoyed performing as a concerto soloist with both the Conservatorium’s Divertimenti String Orchestra and Badaboom Percussion Ensemble. Anna was also the recipient of a number of awards including the Barbara Hebden Bursary, and was selected as the sole woodwind nominee for the Brisbane Club Award in 2021.

A versatile chamber musician, Anna has played in a variety of ensembles with other woodwind players, string players and pianists. Notably in 2021, she enjoyed performing with acclaimed Australian musicians Paul Dean and Peter Luff in the Queensland Conservatorium's side-by-side chamber music concert. Anna was also invited, as part of a duo, to perform at several Griffith University graduation ceremonies in 2021, for audiences of over 2000 people on each occasion. In 2019, Anna was privileged to be mentored by internationally-acclaimed chamber musicians as part of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music Winterschool. 

Anna has enjoyed performing as an orchestral musician in national and state education programs presented by the Australian Youth Orchestra and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. During her university studies, she performed regularly as Principal Flute with the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, and held Principal Flute positions with the Conservatorium Opera and Wind Orchestras. In 2022, Anna is looking forward to performing with the Australian Youth Orchestra for its July and December seasons, as well as its National Music Camp in April.

Anna has a wide background in music. She is a classically-trained pianist and violinist, and has loved singing in choirs from a young age. Anna is also passionate about conducting, and has been selected for national and state programs such as the Symphony Australia Scholar Conductors' Program and the Melbourne Youth Orchestra Conductor Development Program. Anna was also the conductor for the Women of Noise concerts held at the Queensland Conservatorium, where she conducted works by notable female composers including Lili Boulanger, Elena Kats-Chernin and Lisa Illean. 

In her spare time, Anna enjoys painting, visiting art galleries and cooking up a storm.
