Elizabeth Mullins
As an arts administrator and researcher, Elizabeth Mullins has accrued experience
across a variety of arts-related settings in which she has focused on
understanding how arts organizations benefit and engage youth and their
communities. 
 
She received her undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Music
Therapy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her Master's in Child Development from Tufts University where she is also pursuing her Ph.D.
in Youth Development in the Arts. Her work on the YouthBEAT Research and Evaluation Project at Tufts University, which investigates the role music plays in the lives of youth from under-served communities, heightened her interest in
supporting and working with arts organizations such as Boston Lyric Opera and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, where she interned during her graduate studies. 
 
She plays piano, flute, and Indonesian gamelan and has traveled around the
world performing at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Vatican,
and the 2000 Olympics in Australia. Through these experiences she has developed
both a personal and professional interest in building arts appreciation and
participation among new and diverse factions of the community, and is excited
to contribute to Boston Lyric Opera's education and outreach efforts in her new
position.
