Recent appearances include a recital for Opera Orlando; Micaëla in Magic City Opera's Carmen; soloist with the Naples Philharmonic (Link-Up Series); Norina in Don Pasquale with Gulfshore Opera. She has been a featured soloist with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale, for which her recent Mozart performances have been broadcast on San Francisco’s Classical KDFC, and appeared as Poppea in Ars Lyrica Houston’s production of Agrippina. Upcoming 2020 performances include Marie in the Daughter of the Regiment with Opera Orlando, Gilda in Rigoletto with the Gulf Coast Symphony, and a New Year’s Eve concert with Ars Lyrica Houston.
Other highlights include appearances as soprano soloist with the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina (John Rutter conducting, Requiem), Carnegie Hall, the Dallas Bach Society, the Orchestra of New Spain, and the Festival of the Aegean in Syros, Greece. BBC Music Magazine (October 2018) named her the “stand-out” of the award-winning recording of Rameau’s Le Temple de la Gloire with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale, Nicholas McGegan conducting.
