Trumpet player based in London: Royal College of Music scholar studying with Alistair Mackie, National Youth Orchestra GB (2009-2013).
Everything was fine and Erika played very well at two churches services. Many thanks.
After receiving scholarship offers from the world’s top music conservatoires such as The Juilliard School, the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, Erika decided on studying the classical trumpet at the Royal College of Music. There she studies with Alistair Mackie (Principal Trumpet of the London Philharmonia Orchestra) and during a year’s exchange at the Manhattan School of Music she studied with Ethan Bensdorf (Associate Principal of the New York Philharmonic) and Mark Gould (Former Principal Trumpet of the New York Opera). Prior to her studies at the RCM, and whilst attending Chetham’s School of Music, Erika was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain for 5 years. Before the NYO, she was principal trumpet of the National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain, where she was awarded the prestigious Leverhulme Trust Scholarship. During her musical education Erika has played in renowned concert halls across Europe, such as the Royal Albert Hall where she played at the BBC Proms for five consecutive years, Royal Festival Hall, Auditorio Nacional (Madrid) and Bridgewater Hall to name but a few. She has also performed under world class conductors such as Vladimir Jurowski, Kristjan Järvi, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Semyon Bychkov and Vasily Petrenko. Aside from classical music, Erika also plays Salsa, Pop and Jazz music, having recently played with Dave Weckl and also playing an actor musician role with the National Youth Music Theatre company for ‘BRASS’.
