Elizabeth Perez-Hickman (oboe), 17, from Miami, Florida, is a student at the Interlochen Arts Academy where she studies oboe with Dane Philipsen. Because of the Miami Music Project and donor Dan Lewis, Elizabeth attended Interlochen Arts Camp for free in 2018 and 2019 where she won the Fine Arts Award and she now attends Interlochen Arts Academy on the Miami Music Project Opportunity Scholarship.

Elizabeth has always known she wanted to pursue music. Elizabeth’s fondest memory of playing is when she won the part of principal oboist on Interlochen’s tour where her friends from the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Miami Music Project joined together for a concert at the New World Center in her hometown.

When Elizabeth isn’t practicing or making reeds, she enjoys spending time outside with friends and family.
