Chris Moore
Trombone Faculty

A champion of contemporary music, trombonist Chris Moore has worked closely with such composers as Helmut Lachenmann, Vinko Globokar, Christian Wolff, Roger Reynolds, Lei Liang, and Pierluigi Billone.  As a performer, educator, and teaching artist, Moore is driven by the belief that all music is accessible if presented in the right context and constantly seeks to broaden the sonic horizons of his audiences, his classes, and himself.  He performs with Callithumpian Consort, Sound Icon, Ludovico Ensemble, and recently collaborated with Guerilla Opera to perform and record Nicholas Vines’ opera, Loose, Wet, Perforated.

Outside of contemporary music, Chris has performed with such ensembles as Spokane Symphony, Cape Symphony, New World Symphony, Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra, and the Redline Brass Quintet.  He was on the faculty of the Longy School of Music in the Teaching Artist Program from 2014-2017 and holds degrees from the University of Maryland, New England Conservatory, and Longy School of Music.  No one succeeds without help and Chris is no different.  He owes a debt of gratitude to Norman Bolter, Carol Viera, Stephanie Skor, and Stephen Drury for their long and profound support over the years.
