She has been featured with the St. Louis Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Brooklyn Philharmonic, New World Symphony, Honolulu Symphony, Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, Greek Radio Orchestra, Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, West Virginia Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic Green Umbrella Series, and orchestras throughout New York and New England. At the Aspen Festival she has been soloist with the Symphony Orchestra as well as in chamber music and oratorio. Other festival performances include Monadnock, Arcady Stockbridge Chamber Concerts, the Music Festival of the Hamptons, and SongFest, in Southern California. Judith was a recipient of a National Endowment of the Arts Recitalist Fellowship and has recorded for Koch International, Fleur de Son, Gasparo and Albany Records.
