She has toured and recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, is a former Principal Flute of the Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss, was a member of Kölner Kammerorchester and has performed as Guest Principal Flute with the City of Birmingham Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Kammerakademie Potsdam, NDR Radio Philharmonie Hannover and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.  She has worked with conductors including Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Roger Norrington, Riccardo Chailly, Gustavo Dudamel and performed in the Festivals of Salzburg, Lucerne and the London Proms. From 2003 – 2005 she played full-time with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and in the following year was appointed Lecturer of Flute at the University of Newcastle.  

She is deeply committed to chamber music and has collaborated with Pianists Clemens Leske, Philip Mayers, Ian Munro, Gabriella Pusner; Cellists Steven Isserlis, Rachel Scott and Geoffrey Gartner; Singers Jenny Duck-Chong, Alison Morgan, Christopher Allan and Paul McMahon; Guitarists Anthony Field, Giuseppe Zangari and the Haga Duo; Harpsichordist Rosalind Halton, Organists Peter Guy and Philip Matthias and Singer/Multi-Instrumentalist Afro Moses.

In 2013 she premiered Andrew Ford’s piece composed for her entitled “Once upon a time there were two brothers…” with the Shanghai String Quartet at the Melbourne Festival.  In 2014 she premiered Andrew Chubb’s “Berceuse” (both the flute/piano and the flute/guitar versions). In 2015 she will premiere William Jeffery’s work “Frivols for Two Flutes” with Tim Munro in “Contemporary Flute meets Contemporary Dance".  Following a long-standing collaborative relationship with Elena Kats-Chernin, Sally will premiere her flute concerto for her in 2015 with the Darwin Symphony conducted by Matthew Wood and later perform it with the Zelman Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mark Shiell (assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body).
