"Music for everyone, everywhere."
Community engagement has been an important part of Elisabeth's music making through the many international communities she has been involved in.
From volunteering as a bugler in her hometown to performing in street orchestras, Elisabeth has made accessibility and involvement priorities in her career.
Elisabeth has designed and performed children's concerts for the People's Music School in Chicago, volunteered through her alma mater, Northwestern University, and worked as an educator for the past 5 years. Check out some of her recent projects below!

From community halls to supermarkets, refugee centers to the top of Ben Nevis, the aptly-named Nevis ensemble brings music to every kind of audience all around Scotland.
Elisabeth recently rejoined Nevis for the 2019 summer tour of the Outer Hebrides. Click here for a review of the ensemble from the Scotsman, which specifically calls out Elisabeth for her engaging presentation style.
