A versatile player, Jane has never limited herself to any particular genre or format. To date, she has played with everyone from American pop rock bands like Hanson, to classical orchestras like the New England Philharmonic. Top prize winner of the Atlantic Symphony’s Concerto Competition in 2016, she now holds a substitute position with the Atlantic Symphony and Boston Lyric Opera, and is a regular guest player with the Boston Civic Symphony as well as Mercury Orchestra. She also enjoys working with choirs, having played iconic works such as Britten’s Ceremony of Carols for solo harp and choir, among other works. Her experience also extends to operas, with notable performances including the North End Music and Performing Arts Center’s production of Puccini’s La Boheme in Boston, as well as the massive production of Vaughan William’s A Pilgrim’s Progress in New Orleans, Massachusetts.
As a solo musician, Jane is honored to have been a featured soloist in the Atlantic Symphony’s Classical Uncorked recital series. She also played for Princess Takamado of Japan in the 6th US-Japan Youth Forum where she served concurrently as a panelist representing Singapore.

Though Jane has played for audiences in Singapore, the UK, Japan and the United States, she is currently based in the US, with plans to return to Singapore in February of 2019. When she is not playing the harp, you can probably find her indulging her reading or love of writing.
