During her time at Huddersfield University she performed regularly with the orchestra, symphonic wind orchestra and new music ensemble, with whom she performed a concert as part of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival subsequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3. She performed again for the festival in 2007 in an ensemble of 20 harpists, including Rhodri Davies and Eira Lynne Jones. She has performed regularly with the Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra and various other orchestras as a freelance harpist.
