Personal Summary / Bio
Eric started his musical education in fifth grade when he joined the Cincinnati Boychoir - that year was a transformational one as the choir traveled to participate the 14th International Youth and Music Festival in Vienna, Austria, as well as singing in venues across Austria and southern Germany.
That experience as an ambassador of music and goodwill abroad planted the seeds of a lifelong love for choral music, travel, and connecting with other cultures.
Eric is now married with a daughter (who is now learning to sing choral music) and currently sings with the Christ Church Cathedral choir, which he initially joined as a professional chorister in 1997. His tenure in the cathedral choir has included residences in Winchester and Salisbury cathedrals in England.
Eric is a founding member of Cantantes Camarae, an early music vocal ensemble based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Cantantes Camarae explores the music, performance styles, and cultural contexts of vocal music ranging from early polyphony of the 14th century through the renaissance and early baroque periods, with the goal of interpreting and bringing this music to life for a contemporary audience. The group's name in Latin refers to "those who sing in the vaulted chamber" which resembles a church nave, as well as the many other high, soaring spaces in which this music was created to fill.
