Festival appearances include the Bard Music Festival, Maverick Concerts, Caramoor, Princeton Summer Chamber Concerts, Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival and Music in the Vineyards.

Internationally, the Horszowski Trio has performed an extensive tour of Japan, at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, for Virtuosi Concerts in Winnipeg. The trio scheduled to make its debut in Mexico at the Festival Internacional de Música de Cámara de San Miguel de Allende in 2018 and its Wigmore Hall debut in 2019.
