Maglione performs regularly on Baroque and modern flute in the Kansas City and Lawrence areas. With clarinetist Madelyn Moore, Maglione founded the Violetta Duo. They performed at the 2019 International Clarinet Association ClarinetFest, were featured artists at the 2018 National Association of Composers/USA National Conference, and give regular recitals around the United States. The Violetta Duo regularly commissions new works and champions music by lesser-known composers. While at the University of Kansas, Maglione had the privilege to record with the KU Wind Ensemble on the Landscapes and In the Shadow of No Towers Naxos albums (2013), “Bliss” by Michael Torke on the Ecstatic Records Concerto for Orchestra album (2015), and on the Of Shadow and Light Klavier album (2017). In 2013, Maglione performed in Carnegie Hall with the KU Wind Ensemble on the premier of Mohammed Fariouz’s “In the Shadow of No Towers.”

Before pursuing her graduate studies, Maglione was an elementary music educator in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she was awarded Teacher of the Year for both her school and learning community within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. In addition to teaching over 750 students weekly music classes, she conducted a recorder ensemble, fifth-grade chorus and two Orff ensembles—Music Makers and the Cougar Consort. The Music Makers were invited to play with the Charlotte Symphony, and Maglione's former students have been selected for All-County Chorus, Northwest School of the Arts and have gone on to pursue music in various capacities. While in the Charlotte, Maglione also worked with the marching bands at Vance and Hough High Schools.
