Chamber Orchestra Concert to Feature Chapel Hill Soprano
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (November 11, 2010) ― The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle (www.thecot.org) announces today that soprano Andrea Edith Moore of Chapel Hill will be the featured soloist at its November 14 concert. This is the second time Moore will be performing with the orchestra. A review of her previous performance can be viewed by clicking here.
“I am delighted to return for a performance with the COT,” says Moore. “The orchestra has such a diverse mix of talented musicians; I am thrilled to share the stage with them and Maestro Muti.”
The concert, titled Fairy Tales from Old Bohemia, will consist of Moore as soloist in performances of Antonin Dvorak’s “Rusalka's Song to the Moon” and Bedrich Smetana’s “Marenka's Lament” from The Bartered Bride. In addition, the orchestra will perform Dvorak’s “The Water Goblin” and “The Golden Spinning Wheel.”
Moore is the distinguished recipient of the Yale School of Music alumni award, is a Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition Prize winner and was named Emerging Artist of the Year in 2005 by the Opera Company of North Carolina. A high school graduate from the North Carolina School of Arts, she holds a Bachelor of Music from Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Conservatory of Music, as well as an Artist Diploma and Master of Music from Yale University’s School of Music. In 2009, she received the Anna Sosenko Assist Trust Career Grant after spending a year performing the roles of Eurydike, Venus and Juno in Offenbach’s Orpheus in der Unterwelt in Hamburg, Germany. Subsequently, Moore returned to the Triangle to accept a position as a member of the voice faculty at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and operates a private voice studio in Chapel Hill, N.C.
“The gracefulness that Andrea brings to each performance holds the audience captive,” says David Lindquist, COT board chair. “It’s a delight to have her perform again with us.”
Moore’s performance adds to an exciting 2010-2011 season that includes guest performances by clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, pianist Andrew Tyson, violinist Timothy Fain and the Cary Concert Singers. A complete listing of concerts is available at www.thecot.org.
The concert will take place at 3 p.m. at the Carolina Theatre of Durham, 309 West Morgan Street, Durham, N.C. 27701. Tickets may be purchased at the box office or by calling 919.560.3030.
