Chloe Moriarty, Violin

Chloe MoriartyChloe Moriarty began her life as a violinist at the age of nine and has been in love with it ever since. She started as a beginner with the Roseville Summer Orchestra program, returning each summer to volunteer and teach beginner and intermediate level students. Her interest in working with young musicians led her to develop her own private studio, which continues to this day.

Chloe has participated in a number of musical ensembles, including the Woodbury Youth Orchestra, All State Orchestra, Birch Creek Summer Orchestra, Schubert Club home recitals, and the Minnesota Youth Symphonies (MYS). Highlights of her six years with MYS include direction under the batons of Manny Loreano and Osmo Vanska, side by sides with members of the Minnesota Orchestra, sectionals led by Minnesota Orchestra violinist Jorja Fleezanis, and performance of world class repertoire including Stravinksy’s The Rite of Spring. She has also given solo recitals and performed in various small ensembles for events and volunteer work.

Chloe spent most of her time prior to college preparing for life as a professional musician under the tutelage of Armaiti Winberg and, later, Mary Sorlie, with whom she developed a particular love for period music and performance techniques. She auditioned for and was accepted into the
Lawrence Conservatory, the St. Olaf School of Music, and the studio of Mark Bjork at the University of Minnesota School of Music. Since then she has pursued and achieved a Master’s degree in Social Studies Education from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities while continuing to play in the University’s orchestra program. Chloe now plays 1st Orchestra. She lives and teaches in Faribault, MN with her husband, guinea pigs, and two large, affectionate rescued Ragdoll cats
