Highlights on the concert platform include Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms with the LSO at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and she has twice been invited to sing as soloist at the prestigious annual Christmas concert at the Auditorio Nacional Madrid.  A recording of baroque music is due out later this year.

2019 saw Inés singing Juliette in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette in Rennes, as well as concerts with Rennes and Angers-Nantes Opéra, alongside concerts in Italy.  She also sang Gretel Hänsel und Gretel at Tenerife Opera where, before COVID-19 struck, she was to have returned in 2020 to sing Almirena in Handel’s Rinaldo.  In summer 2019, she reprised her performance as Elvira L’Italiana in Algeri at the Teatro Communale di Bologna.  Having begun collaborating with the ensemble in 2018, 2020 also sees Inés returning for further projects with Pygmalion and Raphaël Pichon.
