“...Chow evokes in a slow cascade serving the music particularly well with her crystalline sense of meditation and silence...she has a particular affinity with suggestive spaces.” - Fringe Review, June 2019

She has had the privilege to collaborate with world-renowned pianist Noriko Ogawa in a piano duet concert in 2016 and had been a concerto soloist with the University of Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra in 2017. In 2018, she performed the London premiere of Grace Williams’ Sonata for Violin and Piano with Siân Philipps. She is giving a world premiere of Paul Burnell’s Three Pieces with flautist Hannah Cresswell at Southwell Music Festival in 2019. She has performed for the British Military Services, as well as the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office at a number of countries including Russia, France, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
