Pridmore, on the faculty at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, has performed across Canada and the United States as both a soloist and chamber musician. With a special interest in new music, she has been a featured soloist at events such as Newfoundland's Sound Symposium, and has premiered many works by Canadian and American composers. She is a member of Motion Ensemble, New Brunswick's new music ensemble, whose concerts include scored music, improvisations, and interactive electronic and visual media. Motion's CD of works by John Cage was recently released by Mode Records.
