Music has always been a part of Liz Nance’s life since she was a young girl singing solos in school concerts in Winchester, Virginia. She followed her love of singing through school with roles in The Sound of Music at St. Catherine’s School, as well as Promises Promises, Applause and My Fair Lady at Duke University. Along the way she sang in choirs and chamber ensembles that toured the northeast, including the Choral Arts Society in Washington, D.C., where she sang under the direction of Leonard Bernstein, Mistislav Rostropovich and Robert Shaw at the Kennedy Center, National Cathedral, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
Since moving to Richmond in 1994, she has served as a section leader at St. James’s Episcopal Church, where she sings classical and contemporary sacred repertoire for services, weddings and special concerts.
Liz also performs Irish ballads, pop and jazz standards, Broadway showtunes and holiday programs with a number of ensembles which she leads and books. She and Oak Laner Russell Lawson often perform as a duo, as you can see at www.lizandrussmusic.com.
