His American posts include the music directorship of Pittsburgh Opera from 2000 to 2006. He was principal conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra from 1991 to 2006. He currently holds the title of Founding Director of the orchestra. In 2007, he was inducted into the Hollywood Bowlmarker Hall of Fame alongside Placido Domingo.

In May 2006, the University of North Carolinamarker named Mauceri as the seventh Chancellor of the North Carolina School of the Artsmarker. He assumed the post on 1 July 2006, and Pittsburgh Opera released Mauceri early from his contract to allow him to take up this post.

Mauceri's commercial recordings include George Gershwin's Strike Up The Band, for Nonesuch. In 2006, Mauceri conducted the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a concert performance of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess that featured cuts and other changes that Gershwin himself had made in the opera during rehearsals leading up to its premiere by the Theatre Guild.
