As both a composer and piano soloist and collaborative artist Ross has been active in a variety of settings, from international festivals and conferences to regional and community events, mainly in Australasia and Asia.

As a pianist Ross is particularly interested in presenting his own works and those of composers from the wider Asia-Pacific region, and has given recitals at the 'International Congress of Women in Music', Beijing (2008) and 'East meets west' conference at the Hong Kong Baptist University (2009), among others.
