Compositions

Elizabeth’s original compositions (music, and in many cases, also lyrics) span a wide array of formats — from solo cabaret and jazz pieces, to art songs and full theatre musicals.

She, as well as scores of other singers, has performed her original works at venues ranging from the Chicago Humanities Festival and the Park West, Drury Lane/Water Tower, Baliwick and Victory Gardens theatres in Chicago, to Preston Bradley Hall in Chicago and The Paradiso in Amsterdam, Holland.

Elizabeth is also the composer of several musicals which have been produced and showcased around the country, including the prestigious Disney/ASCAP New Musical Workshop in Los Angeles and several Chicago locations such as Steppenwolf Theatre, Theatre Wit and the Athenaeum Theatre.
