Elizabeth Moore, Violin and viola.
Elizabeth Moore started violin as a child with Janet Ciano and Augusto Salazar, among many other musical mentors while growing up in mid-coast Maine. She earned degrees in viola performance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a Bachelor’s of Music, and Boston University College of Fine Arts with a Master’s of Music. Her primary viola instructors were Sheila Browne and Karen Ritscher. In addition to her viola studies, she was a Keenan Fellow at Lincoln Center Education in New York City, where she worked with Teaching Artists in public schools and put on a collaborative performance at Lincoln Center Education’s Clark Theatre. Elizabeth performs regularly as a violist and singer, primarily with Palaver Strings, a musician-led string ensemble currently in residence at the Boston Center for the Arts. A Co-Artistic Director and the Programming Director for Palaver Strings, Elizabeth is dedicated to programming and performing music in ways that engage diverse audiences, and inspires future generations of musicians.
