She is a current Young Artist with Britten Pears Arts and The Musicians’ Company, and a Young Artist Alumnus of Oxford Lieder and City Music Foundation. Recent and upcoming highlights include concert appearances at Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, St Magnus International Festival, Aldeburgh Festival, L’Auditori Barcelona with Exaudi Ensemble, Australian Festival of Chamber Music, the Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas for International Bach Festival Gran Canaria and Irene in Theodora at the Muziekgebouw Amsterdam.
