A veteran of the concert scene, Chenoweth took the stage in a solo sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall in 2004 and continues to tour the country. She performed her solo concert at Sam Mendes' acclaimed Donmar Warehouse as part of the "Divas at Donmar" series. The show received glowing reviews. Following her show in London, she has had numerous collaborations with various symphonies, including The New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops, National Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony. One of her proudest recent accomplishments was having the privilege to perform Bernstein's "Candide" at Lincoln Center with The New York Philharmonic.
