Several years later, it became a regional orchestra and its name was changed to the Livingston Philharmonic.  It developed into a fine orchestra, performing music from the standard repertoire to very appreciative audiences for nearly a decade.  Since 2001, Ms. Toth has also been concertmaster of the Genesee Symphony in Batavia, under the baton of Raffaele Ponti.  For several years, she was also concertmaster of the Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus.  In October of 2010, she was posted as Brighton Symphony’s concertmaster.  

Additionally, Ms. Toth has performed as violin soloist throughout Western NY with pianists Dr. Kevin Nitsch and Sonja Shelton.  She has also collaborated with celebrated indie artists such as guitarist Gregory Paul and Celtic harpist/singer/songwriter, Mary Shannon.  In February of 2011, Ms. Toth opened Toth Music Studio where she teaches violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano to more than 50 private students.  Ms. Toth is the proud mother of a daughter and son who are also musicians.
