Throughout her career, Panfili has graced the stage with esteemed orchestras including the Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, the Sonderborg Symphony, Weimarer Staatskapelle, and the Jerusalem Symphony. Her collaborations span a wide spectrum of celebrated artists, ranging from Andrea Bocelli, Lisa Gerard, Tina Guo, and Woraklsto Igudesman & Joo, Valentina Nafornita, The Aristocrats, and Carlos Raffael Rivera.
