Carla Moore


As one of the leading exponents of Baroque violin on the West Coast, Carla Moore serves as co-concertmaster for Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra as well as concertmaster and soloist for Portland Baroque Orchestra (Oregon). Carla is a founder and co-director of Archetti, a Baroque string band dedicated to the performance of 18th century concerto repertoire, and she performs chamber music with the early music ensembles Music’s Re-creation and Voices of Music. Carla’s most recent recording is J. S. Bach Violin Sonatas with Voices of Music. Her videos with that group now have over 5 million views on YouTube.  Additional engagements for 2013/14 include concertmaster for Pacific Baroque Orchestra (Vancouver) and The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado (Denver), as well as chamber performances in Seattle, Los Angeles and Santa Fe. Carla teaches Baroque strings at the University of California at Berkeley. Shortly after earning her Masters degree at Indiana University’s Early Music Institute, she won First Prize in the Erwin Bodky Competition for Early Music.

She plays a violin made by Johann Georg Thir, 1754.
