Profile: Antoni Mendezona

Lyric Coloratura
Soprano

Filipina-Spanish coloratura, Antoni Mendezona, has been singled out for her captivating and dynamic stage presence and musicality. Nicknamed by Dicapo Opera in New York as the “eleventh hour”, Antoni has stepped in twice at the last minute for two important debuts of American operas. She stepped in with just one rehearsal to perform the international debut of Tobias Picker’s Emmeline as Sophie with Dicapo Opera as a part of the Mezzo Television Festival in Szeged, Hungary. The performance was broadcasted live on Mezzo television throughout 36 different countries in Europe and South America.

Most recently, Antoni stepped in, informed only hours before curtain, to sing the role of Veronique in the New York City premier of Thomas Pasatieri's The Hotel Casablanca also at Dicapo Opera. This garnered rave reviews from the New York Times saying “Antoni Mendezona, a last-minute substitute as the hotel clerk Veronique, stole scenes with her pealing voice and bubbly personality”. Her other operatic roles include First Lady from Die Zauberflöte, Amore in L'incoronazione di Poppea, Zerlina from Don Giovanni, Lolo from The Merry Widow, Le Rossignol from L’enfant et les Sortilèges, Flora from The Turn of the Screw with Sacramento Opera, Frasquita from Carmen with Connecticut Grand Opera and the Bar Harbour Music Festival, and Elisa from Il Re Pastore. She will return to Sacramento Opera this fall as Dorinda in Handel's Orlando.

In addition to her operatic performance, Ms. Mendezona has been featured as the Youth soloist with the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra in Mendelssohn's Elijah, the Soprano soloist in the Fauré Requiem with the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra and a soloist for the Bach Cantata BWV 80 Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott. Antoni most recently sang as the soprano soloist in Bach's St. John Passion with Maestro T. Herbert Dimmock as part of the prestigious Bach Concert Series in Baltimore, MD. As a participant in competition, Antoni has earned first place in the SJNATS district competition, second in the Fresno Young Vocalist Awards, first in the Mu Phi Epsilon Sacramento Chapter Scholarship, was a finalist for the Stewart Brady Competition, third in the San Jose Music Club Scholarship, was the recipient of the Young Artist Incentive Award from West Bay Opera’s Henry and Maria Holt Competition, won the Mu Phi Epsilon Graduate Study Award and most recently won the Little Italy Merchants Association Honorable Mention award.

Antoni received her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from California State University of Sacramento and Masters of Music in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at Westminster Choir College of Rider University. She is a student of Kate Johnson.
