As a founding member of the Giros String Quartet and an engaged chamber music performer, she has participated in several music seasons in Chile, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and the United States.
Diana has over ten years of experience teaching in Chile and Peru, where she is regularly invited to teach at the Lima Suzuki Summer Institute.
