Described by the press as "some of the finest baroque musicians in America" and "among the best in the world,” Musica Pacifica performs 17th- and 18th-century music on varying combinations of recorder, oboe, violin, cello/gamba, harpsichord, and percussion. The artists perform with Philharmonia Baroque and American Bach Soloists in the  SF Bay Area, and with prominent early music ensembles nationally and abroad. They have performed on such prestigious concert series as The Frick Collection and Music Before 1800 (NY), the Getty Museum (LA), Tage Alter Musik (Regensburg), Houston Early Music, Chamber Music in Historic Sites (LA), Early Music Guild (Seattle), and the main stages of the Boston and Berkeley Early Music Festivals, among others. Their 2015 performance at the Boston Festival was called “sensational” by The Boston Musical Intelligencer. They often collaborate with such early music all-stars as Aaron Sheehan, tenor; Ryland Angel, tenor/countertenor; and Baroque violinist/Celtic fiddler, David Greenberg. Musica Pacifica's nine CD releases on the Virgin Classics, Dorian, and Solimar labels have won national and international awards, including Chamber Music America/WQXR’s Record Award, features on NPR’s Harmonia, Performance Today, and Minnesota Public Radio, and being chosen as "CD of the Month" by the early music journal Alte Musik Aktuell (Regensburg). Judith Linsenberg, recorders; Ingrid Matthews, violin; Alexa Haynes-Pilon, cello/viola da gamba; Charles Sherman, harpsichord.
