Hailed by the Baltimore Sun as an artist whose “achingly sweet touch at the keyboard ... will make audiences weep,” pianist Elizabeth Morgan has received wide critical acclaim for the sensitivity and imagination of her performances. She recently graduated with her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in piano performance from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Robert McDonald and Yoheved Kaplinksy. Other pianists with whom she has worked include Walter Ponce, Rosalyn Tureck, Emmanuel Ax, Gary Graffman, Ursula Oppens, Claude Frank, and Joseph Kalichstein.

Ms. Morgan has performed as a soloist in many major New York venues, including Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall, Society Hall, and the New York Library for the Performing Arts. She has performed with the Mark Morris Dance Company and has appeared at numerous festivals including Tanglewood, Aspen, and Festival of the Hamptons. Her performances have been broadcast on National German Radio, WQXR New York, and KDFC San Francisco.

In 2003 Ms. Morgan appeared on National Public Television as one of five featured students in an American Master’s Emmy Award winning documentary about Juilliard, which included excerpts of her performances of The Goldberg Variations and Chopin’s Second Ballade.

Ms. Morgan was teaching assistant to David Dubal at The Juilliard School and radio host of Tuesday Morning Classical on WKCR, 89.9FM, New York, for two years. She is currently pursuing a PhD in historical musicology and a DMA in piano performance at UCLA.
