“Rambaldi was in rich, lyrical voice throughout the evening, singing with clarity and subtle expression. . .   Rambaldi’s physical movements and vocal gestures always appear natural; her shading and thinning of her tone in the final act, for instance, was a nice touch, done with subtle style ”

Chicago Tribune


She has concertized extensively in such works as Mozart’s C Minor Mass with Boston Baroque, and both the Messiah and Elijah at Orchestra Hall in Chicago.  Other concert works have included Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate, Carmina Burana and the Bachianas Brasilieras of Villa-Lobos.
