5/16/21 - “Homage” - works intended as homages to people and places.

6/20/21 - “Movement and Dance” - a program inspired by motion, movement, and dance forms.

A versatile performer in solo, chamber music, and orchestral realms, Audrey has previously held positions with the Excelsa Quartet (2014-16) and New World Symphony (2013-14).
