Eric Simpson, violin, originally hails from Haverford, Pennsylvania, where he began playing the violin at age four. Studying with Lee Snyder at the Settlement Music School, he won numerous concerto competitions and made solo appearances with area orchestras. For four summers he studied with David and Linda Cerone of the Cleveland Institute of Music, and while an undergraduate at Yale College, where he majored in Classics, Eric was in the studio of Syoko Aki at the Yale School of Music. In 2016, he was a finalist in WQXR's "Moonlighters Competition," a competition for accomplished amateur musicians in the New York area.

For five years, Eric was an editor at The New Criterion, where he began writing music criticism. Since then, he has published more than 350 reviews and essays in The New Criterion, The Wall Street Journal, The Hopkins Review, and The New York Classical Review, where he remains a regular contributor. He is now the Chief Development Officer at the Paideia Institute, a nonprofit working to promote the study of Latin and ancient Greek.
