Solo cellist of Disney's International Tour of Beauty and the Beast. I have recorded in studios such as Avatar Studios, ManMade Music Productions, Bunker Studio and Premier Studios for PBS, Blakewood Documentary, YouTube sensation Robyn Adele Anderson, Emmy award-winning (and former Saturday Night Live Music Director) Katreese Barnes.
I have performed in nineteen different countries as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
From 2014-2016, I was the solo cellist for the International Tour of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, playing solo cello amplified to thousands of audience members. In January 2017, I toured Japan with the Hollywood Festival Orchestra as principal cellist. I have worked with dozens of other professional orchestras such as the New York Chamber Players, the Marion Philharmonic, Anderson Symphony, Muncie Symphony, L’Orchestre de La Francophonie, Sibelius Academy Orchestra among others.
As a soloist, I have performed and produced seventeen solo recitals in Toronto, Chicago, New York City, Moscow, Riga, Cremona, and Helsinki. In 2006, I performed the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto in Toronto and Chicago with the Etobicoke School of the Arts Orchestra and most recently performed the Elgar Cello Concerto with the New Westchester Symphony Orchestra.

Liz was very kind and very quick. I had my track in less than two days and it sounded just like I'd envisioned. She's wonderful!
In every session for my first album [The Broadest Blue - Kennedy] that called for cello, I hired and then re-hired Liz to play—and this makes up a majority of the album. She is reliable, excellent, and a pleasure to work with.
I've been working with Liz for over seven years. The single thing that stands out the most is that she manages to blend uncompromising musicality with a genuine and open-hearted drive to collaborate. Whether working as a cellist, a songwriter, an arranger or an audio engineer, her superb musical ear is always combined with a genuine desire to use her talents to make any collaboration she's part of the best it can be.
And when she's working on a project, the best it can be is an extraordinarily high quality.
I was absolutely blown over by the recording Liz did for my song, Moon. Her line was very beautiful and added the perfect missing ingredient. She is one extremely talented, adaptable and intuative musician. Liz was also professional, friendly, promt and helpful during the process. I would definitely recommend her and look forward to working with her again.
