With each vibrant performance, La Monica engages the music and the audience with passion and affection. Artful programming and dramatic flair have established this dynamic combination of solo soprano voice and string ensemble at the forefront of the American early music scene.

La Monica delivers refreshing recitals exploring the depths and heights of 17th and 18th century music, whether theatrical or lyrical, obscure or celebrated. The ensemble has appeared on New York’s prestigious concert series, Music Before 1800, and has also been presented by the J. Paul Getty Museum, Houston Early Music, the Pittsburgh Renaissance & Baroque Society, San Francisco Early Music Society, and early music festivals of Bloomington, Indianapolis, Amherst and Whidbey Island.



“World class performances… La Monica absolutely owns this repertoire and plays it with an abundance of warmth, wit, and intelligence.”
