Elizabeth was a harpist with NEC’s Symphonic Winds and the Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra, and she played with Harvard’s Bach Society Orchestra as a guest harpist. Before college, Elizabeth played with the National Youth Orchestra of the United States and the InterSchool Orchestras of New York, and she guested with the New Jersey Youth Symphony, Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, and St. Thomas Orchestra.
