David Wilson, Baroque Violin

David Wilson has performed extensively with period instrument ensembles in the United States and Europe. An avid chamber musician, he plays regularly with Ensemble Vermillian and Magnificat, and he is a founding member of Archetti, Florilegia, the Galax Quartet, Aurora Baroque, and other ensembles. A co-founder of the Bloomington Early Music Festival, he also performs regularly at the Boston Early Music Festival, the Berkeley Early Music Festival, and Festival Mozaic. He has taught baroque violin at Indiana University, where he earned the Doctor of Music degree in Early Music, and he holds degrees in violin from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. His interests outside of music include cosmology, zymurgy, and science fiction (and he would love to discover a science fiction novel about a homebrewing cosmologist). He is the author of Georg Muffat on Performance Practice, published by Indiana University Press.
