Musicata returns for our first concert in the 2022-2023 season! We are welcoming renowned harpist Erica Goodman as we present seasonal favourites for harp and voice. Come hear a fresh take on the old and delight in the new! Brilliant pieces like Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols” and music ranging from Renaissance Spain to contemporary California.
Widely recognized as one of Canada’s most skilful and versatile musicians, Ms. Goodman performs for TV and film soundtracks and also on CBC radio and TV. She received her training at the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto), the National Music Camp (Interlochen Michigan) and the Curtis Institute of Music (Philadelphia). In 1980, her BIS recording «Flute and Harp» with Robert Aitken was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque. In 1995, Erica 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.
Erica is currently a member of Toronto’s Esprit Orchestra, and also plays in the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra.
