Lisa has been a soloist several times with the Eastside Symphony, having performed works by Stamitz, Mozart, and Chaminade, as well as having commissioned and premiered Three Philosophies by Catherine McMichael for solo alto flute, bass flute, and contrabass flute with string orchestra, which she has performed twice with the Eastside Symphony.  In 2016, Lisa premiered Jeffrey Taylor's Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, and she is thrilled to now add Uriel Vanchestein's Double Concerto to her performance repertoire.
