As a participant of the Verbier Festival since 2012, Audrey performed with the Verbier Festival Orchestra and Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra and was concertmaster under the direction of Gábor Takács-Nagy, Kent Nagano, Iván Fischer, and Charles Dutoit. She also appeared with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, New World Symphony, and Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra.

Audrey holds performance degrees from the New England Conservatory and a D.M.A. from the University of Maryland.
