Erika Pierson earned her Bachelor's Degree of Cello Performance from Indiana University and her Master's of Music Performance from University of Michigan. Between her degrees, during three years in Europe, Erika studied in Berlin, at the Hochschule der Kunste, and then studied privately under Eileen Croxford in London. In 2001, she was invited to perform at the Manchester International Cello Festival. Her other main teachers have included Richard Aaron, Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, Markus Nyikos, and Erling Blondal Bengtsson. Erika has given solo recitals in England, Germany, Spain, and in the United States, and has performed as featured soloist with orchestras in Berlin, Ann Arbor, and Everett, WA. On the less classical side of things, she has also performed with Mannheim Steamroller, Rod Stewart, the Walkmen, and Deltron 3030. Currently Erika performs regularly as the cellist in Bella Sala String Quartet, freelancing and teaching in the Seattle area.
