As President of Humanities West, she has presented programs on 18th century Venice, Rembrandt's Amsterdam, Thomas Jefferson, Mozart, Handel's London, and Versailles. Thornburgh has recorded for Koch International Classics harpsichord performances of Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti and of Grounds and Variations by William Byrd and, accompanying soprano Judith Nelson on the fortepiano, Haydn’s English Love Songs. Her Scarlatti CD was voted Critic’s Choice in 1991 by Gramophone.
