Rhona's concert highlights include: The Angel in Jephtha for the London Handel Festival (also broadcast on BBC Radio 3); a recital of Handel and Purcell in St Georges Hanover Square, London; and The Creation with the London Concert Choir.

Rhona has also enjoyed performing regularly in concerts with Sholto Kynoch for the Oxford Lieder Festival and recently recorded Messiaen's La Mort du Nombre with him and Kaoru Yamada for Stone Records.
