– The Boston Musical Intelligencer
“The night began with Schuller’s finely wrought “Aphorisms’’ (1967) for flute and strings, with Elizabeth Erenberg navigating the thorny virtuoso flute part.”
– The Boston Globe
Elizabeth Erenberg was drawn to the flute at age 7 after rejecting an electric guitar from her dad. It was an Annie Lennox music video filmed years before she was born where she first saw a flute. That, as they say, was that. Though she chose to formally study classical music, many genres influence her musical identity. Growing up in Los Angeles, her dad took her to rock n’ roll concerts throughout her childhood.
Her powerful sound and varied palette of expression apply in many musical genres and styles. Whether it’s classical, jazz, contemporary or improvisation, Elizabeth’s lush tone and sensitive artistry fit into any performance setting.
When she’s not performing with orchestras and ensembles around the world, Elizabeth is a committed and memorable teacher of music. Her dedication to each individual helps them grow technically while building innate musicality that lasts a lifetime.
Behind the scenes, Elizabeth has been a fierce advocate for musicians. Her work for organizations like NPR’s From the Top, Tufts University’s Department of Music, MusicOvation and more have made her a well-rounded and savvy musician. She holds degrees from New England Conservatory of Music and the University of Oregon. Currently, she resides in York, Pennsylvania where she is an active freelancer, recording artist, blogger, and teacher. Elizabeth is also a certified yoga teacher. She recently started learning the electric guitar as a hobby.
