A staple role in her career, her Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia has been described as “agile both vocally and physically, leaving vapor trails with her lyric gymnastics.” -The Naples Daily News

Other orchestral highlights include a featured concert of Mozart, Haydn & Gluck Arias with the New Mexico Philharmonic as well as Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice in concert as Orfeo with the New Mexico Philharmonic, and Bach’s Mass in B Minor with the Grand Rapids Symphony, under the baton of Maestro David Lockington.
