Originally from the dusty desert of Tucson, AZ, Elizabeth Holub began playing viola at the age of nine after pestering her parents for music lessons for many years. She took up the violin while in college at the University of Arizona when, inexplicably, there were too many violas. Elizabeth also moonlights as an electric bass player, and plays viola and violin with bands and for studio recordings. She has performed in Wilco, Arcade Fire, and Roy Orbison cover bands, and hopes one day Arcade Fire will ask her to tour. Elizabeth has performed with Cat Power and the Memphis Rhythm Band, recorded with Los Angeles/London record producer Ed Buller of the Psychedelic Furs, and records for established groups in Arizona, Massachusetts and New York at studios such as WaveLab, Waterworks, Q-Division, and Avatar. As a member of the band Eksi Ekso, she played official shows at SXSW in Austin, TX in 2009 and 2011.
Since moving to the East Coast for the weather, she has performed regularly with the Bangor Symphony (ME), Guerilla Opera (MA), Juventas New Music Ensemble (MA), Boston Opera Collaborative (MA), MetroWest Opera (MA), the String Orchestra of Brooklyn (NY), Greenwich Village Orchestra (NY) and the Contemporary Music Ensemble at CUNY. Her festival credits include the Ameropa Chamber Music festival in Prague, Czech Republic, and the Pierre Monteux School (ME).
Elizabeth currently works in Marketing for Carl Fischer Music and Theodore Presser Company, and has a background in non-profit management and marketing.
