Eric Gratton

Eric Gratton was born in Worcester and raised in Brookfield. A lover of classical music since 3rd grade, Eric has had an active role in classical music since high school, singing in all the choirs and performing in the local musicals at Tantasqua. After attending his first year of college at Salem State University, Eric moved to Manhattan. While maintaining a regular 9-5 job at a major Wall Street firm, Eric sang in amateur and professional ensembles such as The Collegiate Chorale (now MasterVoices), Oratorio Society of New York, and Polyhymnia.

Eric has performed as a chorus member with orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, American Symphony Orchestra, Philip Glass Ensemble, and the Israel Philharmonic. He has performed at Lincoln Center in Avery Fisher Hall (now David Geffen), David Koch Theater, Carnegie Hall, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Alice Tully Hall, and Radio City Music Hall. Eric has performed in the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, Bard Summerscape, the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, and the Salzburg Festival in Austria. A consumer of classical music and opera since his early 20s, Eric is a member of the Young Associates at the Metropolitan Opera and the Young New Yorkers at the New York Philharmonic, two programs aimed at young patrons (under 45) who support these respective institutions.

Since returning to Massachusetts in 2019, Eric has been an active Boston Symphony Orchestra patron as well as local Music Worcester performances. When not at the WICN studio, Eric works in events for a French pharmaceutical company, allowing him to travel and hear the world’s best orchestras worldwide. Since 2022, Eric has matriculated into Harvard’s School of Continuing Education, finishing his degree in business management and psychology during the evenings and weekends. When not working, or studying, Eric enjoys hiking, concerts, new restaurants, and traveling as much as he can. Eric is grateful to be a part of the WICN family and to bring classical music back to 90.5!
