During her time in Nashville, she performed with university ensembles and as a soloist at such venues as Nissan Stadium, The Schermmerhorn Symphony Center, and McAfee Concert Hall and in spotlight performances for Tennessee Music Educators Conference, Southeast Regional American Choral Directors Association Conferences and Nashville Composer Collective.
Ms. Ricci relocated to North Carolina in 2017. She began her career teaching K-6 General Music at Banoak Elementary (2017-2018) and was the Director of Choirs and Music Theory at Olympic High School from 2018-2021 where she also served as Fine Arts Department Chair.
