Elizabeth Borowsky has successfully combined a versatile musical career as a solo and collaborative pianist, composer, and educator. “Elizabeth's performance and personality dismiss any preconceptions of classical music as elite, or being a music of the past. She is a vibrant and engaging performer and can draw even the most reluctant audience member into her spell.” (Fidelio).

She has been a featured performer in over 30 countries, including at distinguished venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, China Concert Hall of Tianjin, and Bosendorfer Hall (Vienna). She has performed as soloist with the Israeli Soloists Orchestra, Lublin Philharmonic Orchestra, Polish Camerata, St. Christopher Orchestra, Šiauliai Chamber Orchestra, Young German Symphony Orchestra, Tianjin Symphony Orchestra, and Towson University Symphony Orchestra. She has recorded CDs and DVDs for Intermuse Co. Records (ICRecords), including an all-Chopin recording.

As composer, Borowsky has written and published music for piano, violin, cello, piano trio, and string orchestra. Her works have been performed the Tianjin Philharmonic (China) and Šiauliai Chamber Orchestra (Lithuania). Her joint collaboration with Dr. David Marchand,“Solo Book for Winds" was published by Imagine Music in 2011. Her work, "Let Us Go to Jerusalem, the City of Peace" was premiered by the King David String Ensemble of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra at the Embassy of Israel in Washington DC.

She has earned a reputation as an enthusiastic and dedicated instructor. Since 2003 she has been a member of the piano faculty of the International Music Institute and Festival USA. She was appointed Executive Director in 2010. She established Piano Prodigies, a program for young pianists in the Baltimore region, and her students have received notable awards and honors, including first prizes in Baltimore Music Teachers Association competition, top ratings in the National Federation of Music Clubs Junior Festival, and scholarships to college music programs. In 2012 she was awarded the William J. McCormick Jr. Educator Grant. She has presented masterclasses in the USA as well as Lithuania, Estonia, and Vietnam. Previously she taught at Indiana University in Bloomington, Morgan State University, and the Maryland Conservatory of Music.

Borowsky studied at Towson University (BM, summa cum laude) Trinity College of Music, and Indiana University (MM). She received scholarships from the Chopin Foundation of the United States (2000-2004), Maryland International Education Association, U.S. National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, Ford Foundation, and Kosciuszko Foundation.
