Under her direction the TSO Chorus has given performances in Hobart and regional Tasmania, and through her initiative, collaboration with interstate choirs has resulted in performances with Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Victorian Opera, Adelaide Festival Chorus, West Australian Symphony Orchestra Chorus and in Hong Kong with the WASO Chorus and Hong Kong Philharmonic. She has been chorusmaster for the Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute and the Australian Intervarsity Choral Festival and in 2014 was assistant to the conductor for Hobart Baroque’s production of Handel’s Orlando.  More recently she has devised and directed cutting-edge TSO Chorus programs for a number of festivals, including in the Speigeltent for Ten Days on the Island, Mona Foma, Dark Mofo, Synaesthesia and Synaesthesia+. In 2016 she was Director for Bach’s St Matthew Passion and last year facilitated a group of TSO choristers to perform in the Mitsingkonzert in the Berlin Philharmonie. In January for Mofo, she directed TRUCE, an a cappella choral program that roamed the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).
