Mitzy recently toured China with the Manhattan Symphonie, performed a solo recital at Teatro Armando do Re in Suzano, Brazil, and played with the Eleazar de Carvalho Festival Orchestra in Fortaleza, Brazil, in addition to participation in the Rutgers Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Tempest Opera Production, in which she played recorder.

She has also performed at the Skidmore Flute Institute, Eastern US Music Camp at Colgate University, and toured France with the Ridgefield Youth Symphony Orchestra. During the 2009-2010 season of the New York Youth Symphony Chamber Music Program, Mitzy formed the MA duo with clarinetist Ashley Grutta, coaching with flutist Laura Gilbert, with invitational performances at The National Arts Club, Carnegie's Weill Hall, and at Symphony Space as performers for the NYYS Making Score Program, as well as in masterclasses with Tara Helen O'Connor and Alan R.
