As a member of the Konzertvereiningung der Wiener Staatsopernchor she worked with distinguished conductors as Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Antonio Pappano, Marc Minkowski and Sir Simon Rattle.

During the Mozart Year 2006 she participated as guest by the Athens Symphonie Orchestra in the "Mozart Gala", under Mtro. Andreas Tselikas and so in the Neue Oper Wien Production from "Zauberflöte 06 " (Th. Pernes) in the roles of 2nd. Dame and Boy.

With the Project "Oper Hautnah" (Opera at School) under musical direction from Stephen Delaney, she interpreted Donna Anna in Mozart´s “Don Giovanni” and Lucy in "The Telephone" by G. Menotti. With this short one act opera, she toured to Buenos Aires and participated in the Young Professionals Program of the München EUROVOX 2012 with great success.
