LAMF uses a name-your-price ticket model in order to make great art accessible to everyone.
Ms. Ross began her career in her hometown of Boston, where she was the youngest recipient of the prestigious Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Actress. She caught the attention of legendary Broadway composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, who became her mentor and took Ms. Ross under his wing. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Universal Music Group: Classics and Jazz, produced Andrea’s solo album, Moon River, which debuted on the Top 50 UK Charts. Andrea performed as ‘Maria' in the Broadway Tour of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music and has been a featured soloist with top symphony orchestras including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Utah Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, and KBS Symphony Orchestra in Seoul, South Korea.
All LAMF activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Five Wings Arts Council and Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
