As a distinguished chamber musician Sarah-Jane Bradley has toured throughout the world and has been invited to participate in many festivals, including the prestigious Marlboro Festival in Vermont (1992) and Kuhmo Festival in Finland (2001), as well as the Moments Musicaux Festival in Normandy in August 2008.

As a soloist he has appeared with orchestras at home and abroad, most recently with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican and the RPO in the Royal Albert Hall.
