Since that time, she has also appeared as soloist with the Amici Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre du Conservatoire de Bourg-la-Reine/Sceaux.
Her passion for music brought her to Paris, France to study with Étienne Cardoze and then to London where she received her Master of Music degree in the studio of Felix Schmidt at the Royal Academy of Music. She plays an unknown German cello from 1890.
