Carina runs the Sydney Jasmine Chamber Choir and West Region Chinese Association (Choir) in Sydney, where she maintains her work as a highly sought after vocal teacher and conductor. As a member of the “overseas Chinese” community, she hopes to  disseminate traditional Chinese folk music, helping more and more people understand the charm of this genre.
