Anna-Lisa Kirby


Anna-Lisa Kirby is the Jazz Program Coordinator and Jazz Vocal instructor with the Desautels Faculty of Music.

Anna-Lisa was instrumental in creating The Cool Wednesday Night Hang for the Winnipeg Jazz scene. The Hang, held weekly on Wednesdays at The Orbit Room (4-2077 Pembina Hwy)  has become a Jazz institution in Winnipeg. Taking its cue from many jam sessions in New York, The Hang is a place where students, faculty, seasoned professionals, and visiting artists can hone their skills and exchange ideas in a live performance setting.
