She has performed with ensembles including The English Concert, Trinity Wall Street, New York Baroque Incorporated, TENET, and The Sebastians, amongst many others. She has also appeared at festivals such as BachFest Leipzig, the Festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie with Les Arts Florissants, and Teatro Nuovo.
