Faculty & Staff Spotlight: Elizabeth Gibbs

I have a Bachelors of Music Education from Winthrop University, and I have been the Orchestra Director at E. L. Wright for the past seven years. I also teach private cello lessons through my private studio, and direct the top orchestra in the Community School for the Arts Summer Strings Camp in Charlotte, N.C. I also previously served as the Director of the Union Symphony Youth Cello Choir in Union, N.C. My primary instrument is the cello, which I play professionally at a variety of ensembles including the Lake Murray Symphony Orchestra, the Union Symphony Orchestra, the Augusta Symphony as well as giging in the Charlotte and Columbia areas. My goal is to inspire students to be lifelong music lovers and advocates. I believe that while many students do not aspire to become professional musicians, they will all learn invaluable skills through their involvement in our orchestra program and become better people through their musical experiences. Music is a powerful thing. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Hunter, who is often seen moving many a chair and stand at our concerts, for four years. We have an incredibly adorable son, Gabriel, who is just about to turn two. I love to read, watch movies, go on road trips, especially to the beach, and just spend time with my family.
