Once Maria even sang for Prince Charles himself and for king Kigeli V of Rwanda – a representative of the Royal dynasty Abanyiginya, Maria considers her most important concert to have been her performance for Patriarch Kirill during his visit to the UK in October 2016, which marked 300 years since the foundation of The Russian Orthodox Church in England. Maria has performed in many European countries, including Sweden, Finland, Russia, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany and the UK.

She has of course, also performed with great success in all concert halls of her native city of Tallinn, including the theater "Estonia".
