He has done organ recitals and choral concerts and tours throughout the USA and Europe.
Erich has conducted choral masterworks for choir and orchestra. He also has music teaching and music workshop experience. In 2007 Erich won the Educator of the Year: Bravo! Award, from OPERA America. He is currently working on his Doctorate in Musical Arts (DMA). He has taken masterclasses in both conducting and organ.
