Elizabeth J. K. Erickson - Composer

Liz has written extensively for voice and instruments, both solo and in ensembles large and small. She has always been drawn to the grey area between tonality and atonality and loves to explore new rhythmic combinations. More info on her recent works and compositional style on the Original Works page.

Alongside her original compositions, Elizabeth Erickson also has arranged a wide variety of pop, rock, and jazz songs for a capella groups. Drawing upon nearly two decades 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. More info on the A Capella page.

As a 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. More info on the Teaching Pieces page.
