...
Liz has composed extensively for voice and instruments, both solo and in ensembles large and small. Recent works include Sequoia, her first cello concerto, written in honor of the Sawed Tree of Big Stump Basin; In My Family's Words, a song cycle using poetry written by herself and her family members; and Rhaita, a lively piece for flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, and percussion based on the soundscape of Marrakech. She is currently working on a brass quintet and a duet for violin and cello.
Alongside her original compositions, Elizabeth Erickson also has arranged a wide variety of pop, rock, and jazz songs for a cappella groups and receives regular commissions for new arrangements. Drawing upon more than twelve years of a cappella experience, Liz weaves a texture of rhythms and syllables to achieve a cohesive complexity for any group of singers, from beginners to professionals.
As a violin, viola, and cello teacher, Liz uses her compositional skills frequently. One of her ongoing projects is to create same-instrument accompaniment parts for sonatas and concertos to use in lieu of or in preparation for the original piano or orchestral accompaniment. In addition, she frequently composes and arranges ensemble pieces with her particular students' abilities in mind. KnightLizard Music
