MARTHA PERRY, violin and viola, has developed a vibrant national career as a respected baroque specialist.  Her playing has been called “…ideally realized…taut and loaded with nuance” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and “highly expressive” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer. In addition to performing with the Fort Wayne-Bach Collegium, Martha also performs with many U.S. period instrument ensembles including the Indianapolis, North Carolina, and Atlanta Baroque Orchestras, Washington Bach Consort, Bourbon Baroque, ¡Sacabuche!, Three Notch’d Road, Spire Ensemble, Wyoming Baroque, and Mallarme Chamber Ensemble, as well as with her own recently-formed ensemble, Heartland Baroque. She earned a Master of Music in Early Music Performance/Baroque Violin at Indiana University, where she studied with Stanley Ritchie and served as the graduate assistant for the baroque orchestra.  Martha has been heard in a live international broadcast on Chicago’s WFMT radio, on the early music program “Harmonia,” and on N.P.R.’s “Performance Today,” and has recorded for ATMA Classique, IndieBarock, Edition Lilac, Musica Omnia, Naxos, WFIU, Cedille, the National Cathedral, and Concordia Publishing.
