She continued on to study privately with composers Ionel Petroi and Dan Bar-Hava, during which time she made her international debut. Her Elegy for Violin and Viola amongst other works were premiered in Bosnia and Herzegovina with Music and More Summerfest, and Flight to Trebinje for solo violin and string orchestra was performed by KLK Strings in Lviv, Ukraine. Currently, Molly Frances is a Big Give Scholar at the Royal College of Music, pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition under the instruction of Haris Kittos.
