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 regularly performs with Callithumpian Consort and Sound Icon and is sought after as an avant-garde soloist.
Outside of contemporary music, Chris keeps busy performing with such ensembles as Spokane Symphony, New World Symphony, Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra, and the Redline Brass Quintet. He is Visiting Faculty at the Longy School of Music in the Teaching Artist Program and holds degrees from the University of Maryland, New England Conservatory, and Longy School of Music. Special thanks to Norman Bolter, Carol Viera, Stephanie Skor, and Stephen Drury for their long and profound support over the years.
