Erica Baker Bio

                                                                                                        Erica holds a bachelor's degree and master's degree in music performance (cello) from Boston University School of Fine Arts and the University of California Music School, respectively.  She studied under Leslie Parnas and Gabor Rejto, among others.  She has performed with the Boston Pops, the Los Angeles Debut Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Denver Chamber Orchestra and the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.  In addition she did “freelance” studio work in Los Angeles, and performed for a handful of Red Rocks Amphitheater shows under the directorship of Barry Fey in Colorado during the 1980's.  Favorites she worked with there were John Denver, Smoky Robinson and Dionne Warwick.   Another stable source of income were her string trio, quartet and quintet groups which assisted at many Colorado weddings and corporate parties.  Another group which she enjoyed working with was the Denver Cello Quartet, a group of four Denver Chamber Orchestra cellists who adapted serious and no-so-serious tunes for four cellos.

     After moving out of a full-time music career in the 1990's Erica went over to, and enjoys, the lighter side of music.  She has played upright bass and mandolin in several bluegrass bands, and since 2008 has been in rock-oriented bands on the electric bass.  She also enjoys playing “Old Blue”, an electric upright bass made by Dino Fiumara, BSX bass.
