A native of Toronto, Erica Goodman is acclaimed as one of the world’s outstanding solo harpists. She received her training at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, the National Music Camp at Interlochen, Michigan, and the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Already a concert performer in her teens, she played under the baton of Igor Stravinsky when he recorded in Toronto, and was a concerto soloist with the famed Philadelphia Orchestra. She also was a member of the newly formed National Arts Centre Orchestra under Mario Bernardi and was featured as soloist when the orchestra made its New York début. She is currently a member of Toronto’s Esprit Orchestra which specialises in contemporary music and she performed Alex Pauk’s Harp Concerto when the orchestra made its inaugural European tour in 1999. Her love of chamber music is highlighted by her long association with colleagues and groups such as the flautist Robert Aitken, oboist Lawrence Cherney and Trio Lyra. With the Swedish horn player Sören Hermansson, she has revisited old and commissioned new works for the unusual combination of French horn and harp. She is a charter member of Toronto’s New Music Concerts Ensemble which was recently chosen to record two albums for Naxos featuring the music of Toru Takemitsu and George Crumb. In addition to performing extensively abroad, Erica Goodman has many recordings to her credit on the CBC, Marquis, BIS, Opening Day, Avalon and Naxos labels. In 1980 she won the Grand Prix du Disque for her BIS recording Flute and Harp with Robert Aitken. In 1995, she won a Juno for her solo BIS CD Erica Goodman Plays Canadian Harp Music. NOW Magazine selected her as Best Canadian Classical Musician in its 1996 “Best of Toronto” readers’ poll.
