In addition to her extensive and versatile operatic engagements, Ms. Haney also enjoys a busy concert career. She has made Carnegie Hall appearances as the alto soloist in Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Corigliano’s Fern Hill, and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass. Oratorio performance highlights as Duruflé's Requiem, Mozart's Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah; Bach’s Mass in B Minor / Magnificat / St. Matthew's Passion, as well as Handel’s Messiah.

Upcoming engagements include Mrs. Mister in Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock.
