After her studies Jacqueline worked extensively as oratorio soloist with performances in St. John Smith Square, Codagon Hall, London and for many choral societies around the UK.
More recently Jacqueline performed John Hardy’s Mignonlieder in the Dora Stoutzker Hall, accompanied by Nicola Rose. As a concert performer Jacqueline works together with guitarist Michael McCartney, performing songs from the classical era as well as contemporary repertoire.
