The performance was held in the beautiful Mark A. Scorca Hall at OPERA America in NYC. 

Nov 29 - Dec 26, 2022:
Manhattan Holiday Carolers


Erika was super excited to back singing alto with the wonderful a cappella caroling company, Manhattan Holiday Carolers. Fun fact: this was her 18th season as a professional caroler!

Public performances included Tree Lightings at Tavern on the Green in NYC, The Life Lutheran Church in Old Westbury NY, and the Turtle Bay Association, as well as "Christmas in Historic Richmond Town" out on Staten Island. It was a fantastic and festive holiday season.

Sept 15 - Oct 23, 2022:
An American in Paris

Erika was honored to return to the role of  "Madame Baurel" in the beautiful musical An American in Paris, this time at the Argyle Theatre in Babylon, NY. Her performance was dedicated both to her late husband Jeff who passed away shortly after the last time she played this role, and to her mother Judith, who shockingly passed away during Erika's first week of rehearsals. Erika's mom was so very excited for her daughter, so there was no question about her continuing with the show. Erika would like to thank the Argyle family for their compassion and for dedicating the Opening Night performance to Judith Frances Amato.

2021 Caroling Season!

Erika was thrilled to return to caroling in 2021, especially since the 2020 season was derailed by covid. She was honored to be invited to sing alto in both "The Jolly Holidays" and "Manhattan Holiday Carolers," - two of the most prestigious companies in the NYC metropolitan area - and sang her heart out at a variety of venues, from tree lightings at Tavern on the Green, Kips Bay Towers, and The Life Lutheran Church, to caroling table-to-table in the fabulous Italian restaurants on Arthur Ave in the Bronx.
