Elizabeth Morrow

Elizabeth Morrow joined the faculty at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1991, and holds the position of associate professor and assistant chair of the Department of Music. She received the degree Doctor of Music Arts in cello performance from the University of Southern California under Eleonore Schoenfeld.

Ms. Morrow played her debut as soloist with the South Bend Symphony at age 16 and performed one year later with the Indianapolis Symphony. She attended Indiana University and received an Artist’s Diploma from the Conservatory of Music in Freiburg. In addition, she has studied in master classes with renowned cellists such as Janos Starker, Gerhard Mantel and Antonio Janigro. An eight-year residency in Germany and Switzerland has afforded Ms. Morrow a unique opportunity to explore the styles and interpretations of classical music’s heritage. Her repertoire extends beyond traditional classical periods and styles to incorporate jazz and 20th century compositions, and she has a special interest in and commitment to performing newly commissioned and lesser-known works in the cello repertoire. As a recitalist and chamber musician, she has concertized extensively in Europe and North America. Ms. Morrow has recently released her first solo CD, Soliloquy: Contemporary Works for Unaccompanied Cello, with Centaur Records.
