In her own words:

"As a child I loved music and dance and thrived in my home town of Kendal in Cumbria. I was desperate to join NYCGB and at the age of 11 joined the Girls’ Choir in the year it was formed. I stayed with NYCGB for years, never missing a course and completing two tours with the National Youth Choir, whilst also studying musical theatre in London at Laine Theatre Arts and Guildford School of Acting. My work as a professional singer took me on tour worldwide, but I continued to come back to the UK each year to staff on the NYCGB courses. Work brought me back to the UK, working as a singing teacher with various choirs, music hubs and schools. After moving to County Durham last year I am delighted to now be part of the NYCGB permanent staff team. I feel my experience as a teacher in the past few years and my post graduate degree in Teaching and Learning for Higher Education will only help me in this role. NYCGB has been a huge part of my life and I only hope I can instil this passion into others."


Elizabeth is in charge of administrating all activities and projects for National Youth Choir Annual Programme, National Youth Chamber Choir, NYCGB Fellowship Programme and NYCGB Young Composers Scheme including the annual programme of events, auditions and membership.
