Since then, she has served in many ensembles across the country, including the Dayton Philharmonic, Orchestra Kentucky, the Owensboro Symphony, Springfield Symphony, the Banff Festival Orchestra, the CCM Philharmonic, the CCM Wind Orchestra, and the Harvard Radcliffe Orchestra, including playing in international tours to Australia and New Zealand (Peninsula Youth Orchestra), Spoleto, Italy (CCM Spoleto Festival), and South Korea (Harvard Radcliffe Orchestra). She has also appeared in the chamber music focused Vianden Festival in Luxembourg, and appears frequently in duo with classical guitarists around the Cincinnati, OH area.

From August 2015-2018, Leung has served on the faculty of the University of Dayton, Dayton, OH, as the adjunct flute instructor, director of the flute ensemble, and Coordinator/Director for the Summer Woodwind Performance Institute. As a freelance pedagogue, Leung has led band sectionals during the school year and served on staff during summer band camps in Grant County, KY, Boone County, KY, Hamilton, OH, Mariemont, OH, and Forest Hills Schools, Cincinnati, OH.

This performance is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of Drs. David and Irmgard Dobrow, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2019–20 Dobrow Series.
