Her distinguished and comprehensive professional resume includes appearances with the Boston Pops Orchestra with Keith Lockhart and Bruce Hangen, the Oregon Bach Festival with Helmuth Rilling, the Breckenridge Music Festival, and the Associazione Culturale in Italy. She made her Carnegie Hall debut with the Masterwork Chorus and her Lincoln Center debut at Avery Fisher Hall with the National Chorale, in both instances presenting Handel’s Messiah.

She has performed with the former Syracuse Symphony, the Syracuse Opera and has toured in Italy and Austria.
