Elizabeth Knudson- Composer


Welcome to the website of Vancouver-based Canadian composer, Elizabeth Knudson. Elizabeth has been composing at least since the age of two, and her passion to create music has only grown with time. Having completed her Master’s degree in 2006, she is currently freelancing at several types of music-related work, while establishing her career as a composer.

Musical Interests & Experience

Her musical interests and experience encompass a wide spectrum, from choral, chamber, and orchestral works to electroacoustic sound design, to multimedia collaboration in film, theatre, dance, and performance art. She is also active as a private teacher, and cellist, and is currently involved with the West Coast Symphony and Syrinx String Quartet.  Ms. Knudson is an Associate Composer of the Canadian Music Centre, as well as a member of the Canadian League of Composers, Association of Canadian Women Composers, and SOCAN.
