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.
Commissioning New Works
Should you be interested in commissioning a new work, performing or programming an existing work, or collaborating on a project, Elizabeth would be very happy to hear from you. For more information about sheet music available for purchase/rental/loan, please visit the publications page.
