Artist's Profile

Elizabeth Boardman ’17 viola
Growing up in Seattle, Elizabeth Boardman began studying piano at age four and viola at age 9. In 2013, Elizabeth completed her BMus Viola Performance (Honours) degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London, where she studied with Violist Matthew Jones. She also received masterclass tutelage from Maxim Rysanov, Helen Callus, Rivka Golani, and Illan Schneider.  In 2010, she was awarded the Bank/Kurtz Viola Prize. As a founding member of the Trafalgar Trio, she has taken part in numerous chamber music concert series throughout England. In the Spring of 2013, Elizabeth was selected to be a part of the K12 collaboration project with the Krakow Academy, performing as the violist of the chamber orchestra in Britten’s War Requiem in Poland.

While completing her Masters of Music at SFCM, Elizabeth has had the honor of studying viola with Jodi Levitz and baroque viola with Elizabeth Blumenstock, Elisabeth Reed, and Corey Jamason. As a winner of the 2016 SFCM Baroque Concerto Competition, she performed the Telemann Viola Concerto with the SFCM Baroque Ensemble.

While her focus is primarily on viola performance, she has also studied composition with Stephen Montague. One of her compositions was chosen by the Xperides Ensemble for a performance in the Sede de Arucas Festival, Canary Islands in 2011. In 2015, Elizabeth composed her original score for filmmaker Zoe Furlong's silent film, "The Monk".  

In addition to performing solo, chamber, and early music, Elizabeth is also a composer and vocalist for electro-pop duo White Night.

Elizabeth would like to give a special thank you to Jodi Levitz for all of her musical and non-musical guidance during the last two years. She would also like to thank her parents, Anna and Ethan Boardman, for surrounding her with classical music as a child, for facilitating her musical education, and for their continuous support of all of her current musical endeavors.
