In 2017, Camille soloed with the Austin Civic Orchestra as a winner of the Texas Rising Stars competition and in 2019, she performed with the Roots on an episode of The Todnight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Aside from her performance career, Camille has always taken pride in her teaching, always seeking to provide a supportive environment for her students to have fun and explore their love for music.
