A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, harpist Elizabeth White Clark is a graduate of Curtis Institute of Music where she studied under the direction of Elizabeth Hainen and Judy Loman.
Elizabeth enjoys playing a large variety of solo, chamber, and orchestral works and has an active performing schedule. She is seen regularly as substitute principal and second harp with the Utah Symphony and Utah Opera and has performed with groups such as Sinfonia Salt Lake, the Madeline Choir School choir, and on the Intermezzo Concert Series.
In 2020, Elizabeth performed in the “Lamb of God: Concert Film,” with music by Rob Gardner. While living in Philadelphia, Elizabeth performed as a regular substitute harpist with the Philadelphia Orchestra and played second harp on the orchestra’s three-week European tour.
In 2011, Elizabeth won first place in the American Harp Society’s national harp competition and was named their resident “Concert Artist.” In this role, she spent two years traveling the United States; giving solo recitals and masterclasses to aspiring young harpists. Over the course of those two years Elizabeth’s love for teaching grew. She now teaches as an adjunct faculty member at Brigham Young University, maintains her own private studio as a Suzuki harp teacher, and gives regular lessons to harpists preparing for competitions and college auditions.
From 2014-2019 Elizabeth served as the co-founder and director for the Lyra Society’s Costello Competition for Composition which awards yearly prizes as well as mentoring opportunities for young composers interested in writing music for harp.
When not playing the harp, Elizabeth enjoys being a mother to her three children, spending time outdoors, and creating food in the kitchen.
