Ms. Horton frequently creates and directs performances herself, including the 1940s cabaret Live from the USO and Mother & Child and Songs of Innocence and Wisdom. Operatic highlights include Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Gretel (Hansel and Gretel) and Adele (Die Fledermaus).
