The Interlochen Collection: Harpist Erica Goodman

Harpist Erica Goodman is an internationally celebrated soloist, Juno Award winner and Interlochen camp alumna.

Harpist Erica Goodman spent eight summers at Interlochen's National Music Camp in the 1950s and 1960s. 

Critics have called her "Canada's preeminent harp player," and she's performed around the world.

She even played under Igor Stravinsky's baton.

We spoke with Goodman about her time at Interlochen and how it shaped her professional career.
