As the winner of the 2007 Edvard Grieg Competition, Ms. Lorio travelled to Bergen, Norway and sang in the famous Grieg Hall as a part of Bergenʼs annual international music festival. While there, she also sang a recital at Bergenʼs Rekstensamlingene. She has also appeared in recital at Strathmore Mansion in Washington DC, as well as the Brownsville Museum of Art, where she collaborated with sculptor George Lorio in a concert entitled Waves of Form and Voice. Most recently she appeared in concert with One World Symphony in New York City singing Medora in Verdi’s Il Corsaro and Elettra in Mozart’s Idomeneo.

Daniele has been called, “an exceptional dramatic soprano with superior acting skill,” with, “great promise for her on the operatic stage”. Anne Midgette of the Washington Post calls Lorio, “both physically and vocally sensual” and describes her as having a “big sweet sound”, with “full blown sensuality and a full blown voice”.
