In March, 2006, Oh Du Kleines Kabinett, commissioned by Queens' College Cambridge, was premiered by Anton Lukoszevieze and musicians of Queens' college. This piece was short-listed for a RPS Music Award this year. Her piano piece, Tango, was short-listed by spnm in 2004-5 and was performed by Rolf Hind at the music festival fuseleeds06. The Norwegian accordionist Frode Haltli performed Even if the world is infinitely complex as part of spnm's HINDSIGHT series at Wapping Hydraulic Power Station in London during April 2006. That May, Who kissed my head?, for live electronics and acoustic instruments, was performed by players from the London Sinfonietta in collaboration with Sound Intermedia. She was commissioned by CoMA (Contemporary Music Making for Amateurs) to write a flexibly scored piece called I had to protest for their 2006 Open Score Project. It descends occasionally, Kurbis and For Leone were performed earlier this year by the Kurbis ensemble in London and at Cambridge’s Kettle’s Yard and there were performances of Leek in London and Manchester by the BackBeat Percussion Quartet. She is currently taking part in spnm's 2006/07 Adopt a Composer scheme which pairs amateur ensembles, in this case the City of Southampton Orchestra, with a composer for a year. The piece will be performed at Southampton’s Guildhall in November.
