The pianist was distinguished by the promotion of Portuguese music.

In addition to Fernando López-Graça, she was also closely collaborating with other composers, such as Constanza Capedville and Victorino D’Almeida, to whom she dedicated several compositions.
He taught at the National Conservatory and at the Lisbon Higher School of Music (ESML) until November 2008.
Olga Prats was one of the founders of Opus in 1980, and the musical theater group Grupo Kolikviva in 1975.
