She has recently been selected for the International Art Song Competition 2018 in Stuttgart and the International Summer School in Oxenfoord under the leadership of Malcolm Martineau. Sofia has sung solo roles in contemporary opera productions at the Lucerne Theater and the Theater Casino Zug and made her debut as Anna (Nabucco) at the Leiden Theatre. Further roles on the operatic stage include Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro) Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Despina (Cosi fan Tutte), Prima Sorella Cercatrice (Suor Angelica), Musetta (La Boheme) and Adina (L`Elisir d`amore). She has worked with stage directors such as Floris Visser, Elsina Jansen, Miranda Lakerveld, Pierre Audi and Christine Cyris.

Sofia`s concert repertoire includes the solo parts in Mendelssohn`s Psalm Op. 42 as well as Haydn's oratorios The Creation and The Seasons, all performed with the Sinfonietta Zurich under the direction of Joao Santos; Mozart's Missa Brevis (D major) sung with the Festival Strings Lucerne; Beethoven`s 9th Symphony under the direction of David Zinman with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra and the Zurich Singing Academy; Ravel`s Shéhérezade under direction of Ed Spanjaard and Goebbels`s Country Of Last Things under direction of Jurjen Hempel at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht. Together with the pianist Haiou Zhang she made her debut at the International Festival Buxtehude; with the Dutch pianist Frans van Ruth she has performed Schlegel`s song cycle Op.28 in Leiden and Amsterdam, recorded by the Dutch radio; with the pianist Eva Laas she gave the Swiss premiere of Pozdejev`s Cantata Sulamith at the Grossmünster in Zurich and with the Hanseatic piano trio she recently performed Beethoven`s Welsh Songs at the City Hall Concerts Series in Wismar.
