Elizabeth Jordan studied at the Royal College of Music and then at the Royal Northern College of Music, assisted by a Countess of Munster scholarship.
Alongside playing principal clarinet with the Northern Chamber Orchestra, she has pursued a busy freelance career involving solo performances, chamber music and orchestral playing, including appearances as guest principal with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Hallé and BBC Philharmonic orchestras, as well as in contemporary music, opera and ballet. This has involved extensive travel throughout Europe, Japan, USA and South America.
Highlights have included concerts at the Carnegie Hall, Aldeburgh Festival, BBC Proms, Wigmore Hall and solo appearances at the Buxton Festival.
She has always enjoyed exploring the variety of the clarinet family, specialising in piccolo clarinets, basset-horn and basset-clarinet.
