The program will include Eric’s own arrangement of Violin Sonata Number 2 by French composer, Benjamin Godard, as well as works by Francois de Fossa, Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856), Francisco Tarrega, Emilia Guliani-Gugliemi — one of the first great women composers for the guitar — and others.

He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance from SUNY New Paltz and has received lessons or master classes with Gohar Vardanyan, David Starobin, and others.
