Invited to Slovenia, her parents’ homeland, Veronica was engaged as a roster singer by the Slovenian National Opera House and made her debut as Felice in Wolf-Ferrari’s “I quatro rusteghi”. Many other roles and engagements followed; specially noteworthy was her interpretation of the lead role in Debussy’s “Pelleas et Melisande”.

Over the years, she has performed as a soloist with the Argentine National Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Buenos Aires “Estudio Coral”, Greater Miami Opera, Florida International University Master Chorale, Ljubljana Opera, Slovenian Chamber Chorus, Miami Symphony Orchestra and Florida Grand Opera, and under the batons of Antonio M. Russo, Marko Letonja, Stewart Robertson and Theodor Guschlbauer, among others.
