Hi! I’m Elizabeth Davis, strings teacher at Pallotti High School in Laurel, Maryland. I’ve also been playing cello for over 35 years, including 17 years in two professional symphony orchestras. Unfortunately, several hand injuries and surgeries have wreaked havoc on my endurance, so I’m back in the amateur groups these days.
I earned a B.M. in cello performance from University of Evansville, Indiana, then went on to grad school at LSU in Baton Rouge, where I changed my major twice, culminating in a M.M. in music composition.
The last couple summers, I’ve been playing violin in a summer string orchestra, and while I love it, I’m afraid I’ve yet to develop a good violin vibrato! Seems I’ve ingrained the cello style too deeply!
This Youtube playlist has a few pieces my string quartet played in the last couple years if you’d like to hear us.
