Moore, who received her bachelor’s degree from the Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University and Master of Music and Artist Diploma from Yale University, is a prize-winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She has twice received the Yale School of Music Alumni Award.
Previously, Moore performed with the Hamburger Kammeroper, Central City Opera, Aspen Music Festival, Greensboro Opera, The North Carolina Opera, Long Leaf Opera Festival, Yale Opera, and Peabody Opera Theater. In concert and recital, she has performed with the Richard Tucker Foundation, The El Paso Symphony Orchestra, The North Carolina Master Chorale, The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, The Duke Symphony, Eastern Music Festival and on tour in South America with notable debuts in Buenos Aires at Teatro Colon and Rio de Janeiroʼs Teatro Municipal. Moore’s current projects include “Family Secrets,” a new dramatic song cycle commissioned by Moore and composed by Daniel Thomas Davis.* Moore was recently named to receive the Durham Arts Council’s 2015 Emerging Artist Award.
“The Chamber Orchestra of The Triangle is particularly pleased to have as a guest soloist the incomparable Andrea Moore,” said David Lindquist, chairman of the COT board of directors. “Our work together has received consistent critical acclaim, exemplified by one critic writing that he was stunned to find his cheeks moist from the exquisite blending of voice and orchestra in Barber’s ‘Knoxville: Summer of 1915.’ I can hardly wait to once again hear her soaring voice in Bach and Pergolesi.”
