She Stuck with the Violin, DSSO concertmaster began playing at age 2Erin Aldridge was hardly more than a baby when teachers at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music found that she had perfect rhythm and perfect pitch. Thus at age 2 ½ the future concertmaster of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra began playing what is still her favorite instrument, the violin. Her musical family – her grandmother was a gifted violinist – encouraged her interest and through her childhood in Milwaukee she sang and played piano, saxaphone and harp. But she stuck with the violin.
