The 1867 Sanctuary is pleased to present a program of virtuoso piano music in the beautiful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary. In addition to his powerful renditions of the great classical repertoire, Clipper Erickson‘s interpretations of American music from past and present have launched a series of CD releases that have received considerable critical acclaim and have often been featured on radio stations throughout the United States. He continues to be active in premiering and promoting new works by American composers.
Erickson made his debut as a soloist with the Young Musicians Foundation Orchestra at age nineteen in Los Angeles. After studies at The Juilliard School, Yale University, and Indiana University with the renowned British pianist John Ogdon, his interpretations began earning prizes at international competitions including the Busoni, William Kapell, and the American Pianists Association.
