Her music has been heard at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Solomon R.

Her two orchestral song cycle records, Penelope (2010) and Unremembered (2015), graced top five lists on NPR, The Washington Post, The Nation, and Time Out New York. 

Recent and upcoming commissions include Mass for the Endangered, for Trinity Wall Street Choir and NOVUS NY; Embrace, a 40-minute orchestral ballet for Birmingham Royal Ballet; and O Ecclesia, an opera co-commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects.
