In August, 2016, the symphonic version of her “Song for the Ocean” was performed at Sydney Opera House by a choir of 800 Australian children. In 2011 she became the singer for Bella Gaia, a multimedia theater experience created in conjunction with NASA.

Hoffmann’s music is “art-rock with elegant, baroque-tinged melodies, precisely nuanced piano, hypnotic rhythms and out-of-this-world gorgeous, dynamic vocals,” — New York Music Daily

The United Nations celebrates World Oceans Day every year on 8 June. On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor and help to protect our oceans, which regulate our climate, provide most of our oxygen, support the food chain, and connect us all.

This year, the theme for World Oceans Day is “Gender and the Ocean,” an opportunity to explore the gender dimension of humankind’s relationship with the ocean.

The 2019 edition of World Oceans Day will strive to build greater ocean and gender literacy and discover possible ways to promote gender equality in ocean-related activities such as marine scientific research, fisheries, labour at sea, migration by sea and human trafficking, policy-making and management.
