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 (San Francisco) and as concertmaster and soloist for Portland Baroque Orchestra (Oregon). Carla is a founder and co-director of Archetti Baroque Strings, a conductor-less 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 recordings are Grand Concertos by Handel and Hellendaal with Archetti Baroque Strings on Centaur records and J. S. Bach Violin Sonatas with Voices of Music. Her videos with that group now have over 5 million views on YouTube.

In addition to teaching baroque violin and viola at the University of California at Berkeley, she teaches baroque violin at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. 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.
