During the 2019-2020 season, Ms. Boedecker joined the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Mozart's Mass in C minor, the Wichita Symphony Orchestra and Capriccio Columbus as the soprano soloist in Carmina Burana, the Naples Philharmonic as the soprano soloist in Handel's Messiah, and the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe for their New Year's Eve Gala, where she performed Mozart's Exsultate, Jubilate. Ms. Boedecker is a former resident artist with the Pittsburgh Opera. She completed two summers as an apprentice artist with both the Santa Fe Opera and the Merola Opera Program in San Francisco.
