Hi, I'm Erin, thanks for visiting my website! Here is my Bio:
Erin is the Principal Clarinet player for the Ballet West Orchestra. She began her tenure with the orchestra in 2014 and continues to be thrilled at every opportunity to play with the group. Before joining the Ballet West Orchestra, she played a season with the Utah Symphony and was the principal clarinetist with the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra from 2007-2014. In addition to her work with various groups around the Salt Lake area, including the Utah Symphony, studio recording, and chamber works, Erin is currently an adjunct clarinet professor at the University of Utah.
While Erin loves playing ballet literature, she also likes to spice up her musical life with something completely different. She is the founder, contractor, and music arranger of the Park City Polka Players. She and her husband both play in the polka band along with other Ballet West Orchestra members. They have performed at Swiss Days, Snowbird Oktoberfest, the Park City Canyons Oktoberfest, the Utah Motorsports Oktoberfest, several breweries, and many other smaller parties.
Erin grew up in Littleton, Colorado, and began playing the clarinet when she was handed her stepmother’s old instrument in the 6th grade. Having already had a couple of years of piano lessons under her belt, she took to the clarinet very quickly. She teaches both clarinet and piano lessons in Park City, Utah, where she and her husband live with their one-and-a-half-year-old son. They enjoy spending as much time outside as possible-skiing, biking, hiking, paddle boarding, camping, and playing ultimate frisbee.
