Liz Chidester

My name is Liz, and I moved to Chicago three years ago from the mountains of Virginia! I have been playing my original music and performing in theatre productions throughout the city ever since. Before moving to Chicago, I was singing all over the world with Carnival Cruise Lines and Holland America Line. I have my Bachelors in Music from James Madison University in the Shenandoah Valley of VA.  I have been working with the Youth Guidance program at Ravenswood Elementary School this past school year, and will be working as a teaching artist at Old Town School of Folk Music this summer! I am very excited to be a part of the Sherwood Community Music School team!
