In 1980, she immigrated to the United States and has participated in many amateur competitions, and played in several recitals at festivals in Argentina, Italy, Japan, Israel, Germany, France, the U.K., and the U.S. Ross has studied piano with the famed Karl U. Schnabel, and was featured in the documentary film, They Came To Play, which depicts several competitors at a Van Cliburn Competition.
