Before moving to Stockholm, Molly was selected to represent Canada in the Orchestra of the Americas European Summer Tour, acting as principal horn performing across Poland, Ukraine, Germany and Scotland.
She received her Bachelor of Music from McGill University and then pursued graduate studies in Germany at Folkwang Universität der Künste (University of the Arts) completing her Master of Music in 2018. In addition to orchestral performance, Molly is an avid chamber musician who also seeks to expand the musical possibilities of the horn through alternative arrangements.
