In addition to recitals and concerto engagements with such world renowned orchestras as the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and the Jerusalem, Sydney, London Chamber, and Fort Worth Symphonies, Rachel enjoys collaborative projects, working with the Hong Kong Ballet, lighting designers, filmmaker, and other musicians to share her passion of storytelling through music.
