As a performer, her concerto appearances have taken her from Porto Alegre and Uberlandia, in her native Brazil, to Houston, Denton, and Ho-Chi Minh City. In Texas, she appears in the Chamber Music International and Sounds Modern series as well as with CÃ©ciliane Trio. In 2020, her new recital project featuring lesser known works by female composers from the 1919 Coolidge Competition will be presented in Poland and Portugal.
