Ms. Mongiardo also recently performed with Novus NY in a solo recital of music by Bernstein, Mahler and Foss;
and later rejoined them to sing Mahler’s 4th Symphony. In the fall of 2019, Ms. Mongiardo rejoined New York City Opera for their 75th Anniversary Concert and Teatro Grattacielo for Respighi’s rarely performed La bella addormentata nel bosco. In December 2021, she again joined the National Chorale as the soprano soloist in Messiah and made her debut with the Greater Bridgeport Symphony in No Place Like Home for the Holidays.
