Orff, Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi by J. Elsner, Missa pro pace by W. Kilar. During recitals and concerts, both in Poland and abroad, the artist passionately performs songs and opera, oratorio, or operetta arias.

Throughout the years she’s participated in numerous composing projects and phonographic recordings, such as Bizet’s Don Procopio (Dynamic Italia publishing house). Currently, the artist is engaged in the project La Voce di Soprano, which promotes a humorous approach to vocal music in Polish philharmonics.
