She has had the pleasure of singing with many local prestigious ensembles including Los Angeles Master Chorale, L.A. Chamber Singers and Angeles Chorale, and also worked as Assistant Stage Manager for L.A. Opera, and Assistant Director for USC Opera.  Many highlights of her career include performing as a vocal soloist for Ballet Pacifica’s “Liebeslieder Waltzes” (Brahms), “Carmina Burana” (Orff) and “Les Noces” (Stravinsky) with Ventura Master Chorale and Antelope Valley Master Chorale. A much sought after clinician of early childhood music education Ms. Plaster created effective music programs for military children in Los Angeles and several Elementary schools (including Montessori) in the South Bay. She has a background in choral conducting and currently teaches piano and voice for children and adults alike.
