Ms. Rodríguez Ríos has performed at numerous venues and festivals in Puerto Rico, including the prestigious Casals Festival. She has toured as a soloist and composer/arranger with the internationally acclaimed, Grammy nominated harp ensemble, HarpFusion for several years. Her performances with this ensemble, as well as her arrangements and compositions, have been enthusiastically received in The Czech Republic, Indonesia, Russia, Switzerland, Spain and Mexico.

   

Ms. Rodríguez Ríos released her debut album in 2006, entitled Harp Voyage and received favorable reviews from prestigious classical music magazines such as the "Classical Source" in London, "La Scena Musicale" in Québec and "Fanfare Magazine" in New Jersey. Recently, Lizary released her second album "Harp Therapy" which is used widely and respected by many including therapists, counselors, schools, treatment centers, and people interested in their own inner peace. Both CDs are available at www.lizary.net.
