Annelise Zamula

Annelise Zamula started on flute at age 11 and picked up sax at 14 after falling in love with jazz. She studied classical flute with the late Wallace Mann of the National Symphony while in her teens. After moving to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, she studied flute with Matt Marvuglio.

Annelise has performed with numerous groups in the Bay Area, including the Riffrats, Moodswing Orchestra, Montclair Women’s Big Band, Connie Champagne and Her Tiny Bubbles, Carwash, the Strayhorns, Golden Gate Park Band, and more.

In 1996 she joined the Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet (BTMSQ) and toured the U.S. and Europe with the group, as well as recording a CD, Sunshine Bundtcake, which was released in March 2000. She has played live radio shows with BTMSQ and the After the End of the World Coretet, both in Europe and at the Bay Area’s own KPFA, KUSF, KALX, and KPOO. With BTMSQ, Ms. Zamula performed with the Indigo Girls on their West Coast tour of 1997, including a performance at the Lilith Fair in Vancouver; at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, and with the Pat Graney Dance Company.

She co-founded the After the End of the World Coretet and composed some of the songs released on the group’s two CDs, Quaternity and 13.

Annelise currently performs with the Bernal Hill Players, Betty Wong,
Big Lou's Dance Party, Noertker's Moxie, the Strayhorns, and the Free Press.
