As a soloist, she has performed in several large oratorio works, such as Mozart’s Requiem, Faure’s Requiem, Rutter’s Magnificat and Gloria, Bach’s Magnificat, and Vivaldi’s Gloria, among others.

A follow-up article is soon to be published in VOICEPrints Magazine in 2022. A second study was published in the Journal of Voice in 2020, titled “Quantifying Subjective and Objective Measures of Singing After Different Warm-Up Durations”.
