The duo has also been invited to be part of the Alicante Contemporary Music Festival and the Oxford Contemporary Music events series and will be presenting 'Kurt Weill: Emigré', a programme especially devised for the Kurt Weill festival in Dessau, the composer's native town.

Mary has recently been involved in both educational projects and Cabaret concerts together with Sinfonia VIVA with whom she will be performing again in the Spring 2003. In 2004, she will also be touring a Serious Cabaret programme including works by Gershwin, Kurt Weill and Britten with the contemporary music ensemble Psappha with whom she made a successful debut last November at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
