Georgia-native Elizabeth Child gave her first solo recital at age 10 and made a televised orchestral appearance at age 12, all leading to her New York debut at Carnegie Hall of which the New York Times wrote, “one always sensed that something was happening in her playing, and that made it easy to enjoy.” She has appeared with the Juilliard Orchestra at Lincoln Center under Stanisław Skrowaczewski, the summer festival orchestras of Interlochen, MI and Brevard, NC, and the symphonies of Columbus, GA and Spartanburg, SC.

Child holds a doctorate in performance from The Juilliard School, a master’s degree in performance from the University of Michigan, and a bachelor’s degree in performance from Converse College. Currently teaching at her piano studio in Tryon, NC, she has returned to performing after an interim career in fundraising and development in healthcare and in the arts.

Today’s program includes Bach’s French Suite in C Minor, Beethoven’s Sonata in F Major, op. 10 no. 2, and Debussy’s “Estampes,” with original compositions by Tryon, NC composer Rita Landrum.
