Jessica Victoria has also performed a wide variety of solo recitals that have featured music ranging from traditional spirituals and Gaelic songs to works in Catalan, Basque, Quechua and Ladino. Many of her programs tell stories through music and narrative, bringing the audience into the beauty of the experience.

In January of 2012, Jessica Victoria made her New York debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall as a first prize winner of the Barry Alexander International Vocal Competition.

She has taught as a guest artist at the University of New Mexico, and has given lectures on topics in music history and philosophy at New England Conservatory and Franciscan University of Steubenville. In 2010, she was invited to present her paper “Music: the Herald of Love” at a conference sponsored by the Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project in collaboration with the School of Philosophy of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Italy. In 2016, she was invited to present her paper “Encountering Love through Beauty: Dietrich von Hildebrand and Ludwig van Beethoven on The Nature of Love” at the 17th Annual Fall Conference of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture at the University of Notre Dame. Currently, Jessica directs the voice track of the Sacred Music Program at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Through music, Jessica Victoria promotes positive social change. Such performances include the National Anthem for the National Federation of the Blind’s March for Independence at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, Spanish art song and zarzuela for the Department of Justice's Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Washington, D.C., and Paradise Lost and Regained, a recital of art songs and her original composition whose proceeds benefited the Good Shepherd Sisters' work toward freeing women from human trafficking in Vietnam.
