She has collaborated with artists such as Itzhak Perlman, Robert Levin, Roger Tapping, Miriam Fried, Paul Biss, Merry Peckham, members of St. Martin in the Fields, and the Silk Road Ensemble. In addition, she has performed at venues such as the Kennedy Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert series, and on the radio show From the Top.
Other noteworthy projects include performances in Bhutan, Cuba, and Colombia and at festivals including [email protected], the Perlman Music Program, the Sarasota Music Festival, Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, and YellowBarn.
