As a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic music, versatile conductor, and passionate educator, ​Liz Knox has served in several capacities within the academic and new music community. As an active composer, her music frequently contains elements inspired by nature, American hymnody, symbolism, and the abstract, derived from her eclectic life of faith, rural heritage, diverse education, and love for the unexpected. As a dynamic conductor, Liz has led numerous ensembles spanning hundreds of years of repertoire from early Baroque to the latest world premieres of new music.

​Knox currently serves as an adjunct instructor of music at Kentucky Wesleyan College, teaching courses in music theory, aural skills, and orchestration. She has served as a church music director since 2013 and is currently honored to be appointed at Heritage Hills Baptist Church in Santa Claus, Indiana. She has served various communities for more than 20 years by maintaining a private studio for students of all ages with lessons in piano, guitar, violin, and voice.
