Originally from St. John’s Newfoundland, Erika grew up in a small community in Prince Edward Island. From a young age, she took interest in music from her father and began lessons in piano. After years of piano lessons and band practices, she decided to pursue further studies in voice. After knowing voice was her primary interest, Erika went on to do a Bachelor’s of Music in Voice at Memorial University under the direction of Dr. Caroline Schiller. During her studies at Memorial, Erika found another new interest in stage managing with the opera program. After two years of stage managing at MUN, (The Medium; 2018 and Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland; 2019) she is looking forward to beginning her new adventure with OOTA’s Phantom of the Opera.
