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 guest principal with the Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Philharmonic orchestras as well as contemporary music, opera and ballet work. This has involved travel around Europe, Japan, USA and South America.
She has always enjoyed exploring the variety of the clarinet family, specializing in piccolo clarinets and the basset horn. Away from music, she has travelled extensively in the Himalayas and enjoys exploring our coastal regions by sea kayak.
