Cellist Eric Bartlett joined the New York Philharmonic in 1997. After 18 years of free-lancing, he was more than a little bit relieved to have steady employment. In 2005 he and 2 of his 4 siblings rode bicycles across the country. The trip totaled 11 weeks, 4400 miles and 250,000 vertical feet of climbing. They started at Pt. Reyes National Seashore and ended at Two Lights State Park near Portland, ME. http://www.BartlettBikeRide.com Eric still enjoys cycling, as well as running and hiking. On tour, when not hiking, he is hard at work on new cello ensemble arrangements for his Orchestral Excerpts class at Juilliard, and for the occasional performance by his Cello Ensemble, CelloFest! He lives in Westwood, NJ, with his wife Sally, a retired former violist of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and their adorable special-needs son, Cory.
