Carla Moore


Described by Strad magazine as possessing “unerring musicality,” Carla Moore enjoys exploring and performing the repertoire for baroque violin. Carla moved to the San Francisco Bay Area from New York City in 1991 when she joined Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. She now serves as one of Philharmonia’s concertmasters and soloists, performs and solos with American Bach Soloists, and travels to Portland, OR to serve as concertmaster for Portland Baroque Orchestra.

Carla is co-director of Archetti, a new conductor-less Baroque string band she founded in the Bay Area, and is a member of the chamber groups Music’s Re-creation and Voices of Music. Carla won First Prize in the 1989 Erwin Bodky Competition for Early Music, and has since traveled with many leading Baroque orchestras and chamber groups throughout North America, Britain, Europe and Asia. She has recorded extensively for a wide range of labels, the latest entitled Concerto Barocco with Voices of Music.

Carla teaches baroque violin at the University of California at Berkeley and at the summer festival, Amherst Early Music (Connecticut). She received her Master of Music Degree from Indiana University’s Early Music Institute where she was a student of Stanley Ritchie.
