Milda is an active chamber musician – she has performed in many different ensembles, playing a diverse repertoire of classical canon works and contemporary compositions. She has been praised for her “vivid and flexible chamber-music playing and imagination for sonic possibilities”. Milda is passionate about collaborating with other artists. Her debut collaboration with contemporary dancer Vaidimante Grudyte on Milda’s work called Odyssey of a Plastic Bag was well received in Lithuania and led to invitations to perform this work in different festivals in Lithuania. She has collaborated with Trinity Laban’s composers and performed both chamber and solo piano pieces throughout the year. The most recent collaboration was with her piano trio (The Helix Trio) and a team of dancers from Trinity Laban in a performance dedicated to 2021 as the Year of Elimination of Child Labour and was included into the programme of the Trinity Laban New Lights Festival 2021
