Eric Miller performs as a viola da gambist, cellist, chamber musician, and session cellist around the Midwest. A specialist in repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries, Eric is an active viola da gamba soloist and member of the Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble. He also performs frequently with Indie Folk artist Katie Burns with whom he has recorded four albums. This year, with a loan of instruments from the Viola da Gamba Society of America, Eric is piloting a new chamber ensemble for high school students, the Madison Youth Viol Consort, which will focus on polyphonic music written for viols during the renaissance. In the fall, Eric will be making his first recording of unaccompanied music for the viol in Madison. Largely and proudly self-taught on the viol, Eric has recently participated in Josh Lee's Free Viola da Gamba Residency and has received great wisdom and encouragement in short bursts during sessions with many of the nation's finest players over the years. As a classically trained cellist, Eric holds degrees from Northern Illinois University and UW-Madison where he trained with two consummate chamber musicians, Marc Johnson and Parry Karp, respectively. A dedicated educator trained in the Suzuki approach, Eric teaches a large cello studio in Madison and has also served hundreds of students as orchestra teacher for the Madison Metropolitan School District since 2009. www.millerstrings.com
