Liz Merrill was inspired to play the oboe when she first heard Peter and the Wolf as a very young child. She was so inspired, in fact, that she went on to earn degrees in oboe performance: an undergraduate degree from UNC (Chapel Hill, North Carolina) and a Master’s in oboe performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She also pursued advanced musical studies at the Royal Conservatory in London. And she still loves to play Prokofiev. While studying and living in London, she also played with orchestras and chamber ensembles that toured regularly in Germany and France. Over a period of many years, Liz has played professionally with several prestigious orchestras across the country. Since moving to the Front Range, she’s been playing with the Colorado Ballet, Opera Colorado, Boulder Philharmonic, the Colorado Music Festival, and still returns to the South to play with the Knoxville Symphony, where she has been a member for about 15 years.
