Lyrico-spinto soprano with a rich and velvety tone, Monika seduces the public with her charisma and her interpretation. "His voice is smooth and his spontaneous musicality is right and very easy to follow," according to conductor Jean-François Rivest.
Winner at the Canadian Musical Competition in 2013, Monika Dongmo is the recipient of a Desjardins grant as well as the Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation. She was also one of the 9 semi-finalists in the prestigious 2014 OSM standard life competition. She was the recipient in 2013 and 2014 of an Orford Academy scholarship. Monika is also the recipient in 2016 of a scholarship from Jeunesses Musicales Canada. In 2017, she received the 375th special prize of the city of Montreal by the Racines Croisés organization.
Holder of the prize from the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal and a DESS from the University of Montreal under the tutelage of Adrienne Savoie, Monika is a gem that we are just beginning to discover.
Recently, we were able to hear her at the 15th anniversary gala of the Opéra de Rimouski as well as headlining at the closing recital of the Camp musical Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean festival.
In opera, Monika won praise for her performances in the roles of Contessa in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, Dido in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and that of Sister Opportune in the operetta Les mousquettaires au convent by Varney.
Very comfortable on stage, Monika Dongmo places a great deal of importance on emotions and acting. Stage director François Racine says of her that she is a sensitive, creative and very intelligent artist.
Monika is currently on tour in Quebec with the play "Ensemble" by the DuBunker theater company (2020-2021).
She cares about her credo: "Singing well soothes not only the soul of the listener, but also that of the singer"
