Elise and Elizabeth met in the 1970's when they were both students at UNC-Chapel Hill. After almost 40 years, they were reacquainted at several of Elise's wonderful singing workshops presented here in Maryland. You will love her gorgeous voice and her personable teaching style, touched with humor and warmth. Check out this YouTube Video of Elise leading a group of youthful singers in her Song Deep in Your Bones.
