Elizabeth’s music has been performed on the National Carillon in Canberra, premiered at festivals around the world and explored in places like the bush, recital halls, pedestrian bridges, car parks and living rooms. At present, she is Composer-in-Residence for Voices of Women and Moorambilla Voices.

In 2022, in collaboration with music educator Laura Andrew and Cobar High School, Elizabeth facilitated Sounds & Stories an education program that saw students collaboratively compose a sound installation that incorporated aural histories, sound design and original music. For this project, Elizabeth and Laura were awarded the 2023 APRA/ AMCOS Art Music award for Excellence in Music Education.
