ANN BOLEN was born in San Francisco and moved to nearby Daly City when she was 2. She comes from a family of musicians, but her love was always singing. She was a member of the chorus in elementary and high school, and enjoyed honor chorale and small group performances at CMEA competitions. After graduating college as a registered nurse she began working at John Muir Memorial Hospital. With her husband and 3 children, she moved around the country eventually coming back to California a few years ago. With the children grown and out of the house, she decided to reconnect with her love of singing by joining the Diablo Women’s Chorale in 2012. Her contributions to the group also include stints on the Board as Parliamentarian/Member at Large from 2020 to 2021 and 2nd Vice President from 2014 to 2015. She presently serves in the role of 2nd Vice President.
