About The Clark Wood Duo:
The Clark Wood duo was founded with a chance meeting of two neighbors who discovered that they were both classical musicians with a love for interesting music and promoting music education. Founded in the southern part of the Salt Lake Valley in 2017 the duo is committed to performing works both standard and unknown to audiences of all ages.

She has participated in the Banff International Music Festival, the Boris Brott Orchestral Festival and in recent years has been an active participant in various Suzuki Music institutes. She spent 11 years living in Brazil and Peru where she was a frequent guest performer and teacher at the Lima International Flute Festival, the Lima Contemporary Music Festival and played as a auxiliary artist with the Peruvian National Symphony.

Recent venues of performance include: Carnegie Hall, The Kimmel Center, Field Concert Hall, The Concertgebouw, and Musikverein. Elizabeth performed as a regular substitute harpist for the Philadelphia Orchestra’s 2014‐2016 seasons during which time she played second harp on the orchestra’s three week European tour. In 2011, after winning first place in their nationally acclaimed harp competition, Elizabeth was named the American Harp Society’s resident “Concert Artist,” and spent two years traveling the country giving solo recitals and masterclasses to aspiring young harpists.
