A couple of us gathered back in 2014 to sing together casually, and after some time found ourselves committed to the idea of being part of a semi-professional group. With that, Mezzo was born!
Since then, we've sung at various venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, the Bitter End, the Bell House, the Marriott Marquis, the Shrine, Pianos, and Sessions 73, and have also been part of events such as Thanksgiving parties, Halloween celebrations, weddings, and corporate affairs. We're also part of the Contemporary A Cappella League and the MTA's Music Under New York program, and are the official music partner of the Women's Education Project.
Most importantly, we're a diverse, close-knit group of women who enjoy each other's company, finding our way through life in this city together!
Liz moved from Toronto to NYC to pursue a fellowship in Public Psychiatry. She has been playing piano since the age of seven, and singing in choirs since the age of 11. She has been singing in mixed a cappella groups for over ten years and is thrilled to be a part of Mezzo. When she's not working, she can be found playing soccer, listening to live music, taking weekend trips to cool cities across America and generally enjoying all the arts, culture and food NYC has to offer.

Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, Angie moved to Los Angeles, CA at the age of 12 out of pre-teen angst. Ever since she was little, Angie was infamously known for hogging the microphone during frequent family karaoke gatherings. Angie is a proud USC Sirens alumna and during her time as a Siren, she sang ba$$ for most of 4 years. When Angie is not working as an educator or singing, she is often watching Broadway shows and running around the city. Angie is VERY excited to join the Mezzo fam and continue her passion of singing!

Katarina’s love of music began with the piano at age 5, and that love transformed into performing in school musicals and singing in church and honor choirs, including a gig at Carnegie Hall. Katarina is a classically trained pianist and a proud alumna of female a cappella groups, Villanova University’s Nothing But Treble and DC’s semi-professional group The District. When Kat isn’t performing or serving the City of New York as a public servant, she is critiquing talent competition shows with her husband Robert, reading an inspiring biography, or researching the next restaurant to check out in the city.

Reynetta was first introduced to the world of a cappella in high school, where she began a love affair with the genre which has continued to the present day.
