Daphna Mor with Martha McGaughey Arthur Haas and Daniel Lee1Masters of the Baroque.

Masters of the Baroque is a program of High Baroque solo and chamber instrumental music, with its exquisite melodies and thrilling virtuosity, which we all share the love and passion for.

Daphna Mor has performed throughout Europe and the United States as both a soloist and ensemble player. Mor’s “astonishing virtuosity” (Chicago Tribune) has been heard in solo recitals in the United States and Europe. She has performed as a soloist with the New York Collegium, the New York Early Music Ensemble and Apollo’s fire, and as a member with the New York Philharmonic, New York City Opera, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, American Classical Orchestra, and many more. Mor was awarded First Prize in the Settimane Musicali di Lugano Solo Competition and twice at the Boston Conservatory Concerto Competition, and has appeared in a duo with Joyce DiDonato on the singer's promotional tour for the album In War and Peace. Devoted to new music, Mor has recorded on John Zorn's Tzadik label, and has performed the world premiere of David Bruce's Tears, Puffes, Jumps, and Galliard with the Metropolis Ensemble. She co-composed and performs live WAVES- a dance piece for Carolyn Dorfman Dance for recorders, Cello, and a Beat boxer. Also active in the world music community, Mor has performed in festivals and on stages worldwide, including New York’s Summer Stage and Munich’s Gasteig. She can also be heard on Sting’s album If On A Winter’s Night for Deutsche Grammophon. Mor serves as the Music Director of Beineinu, a New York initiative dedicated to the modern cultivation of Jewish culture, and is a performer and teacher of liturgical music of the Jewish diaspora. Daphna is co-director, together with Nina Stern of the ensemble East of the River. She leads programs for the Education Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
