Professor Moore has over 30 years’ experience performing in the United States and Europe spanning many genres of music including opera, musical theater, pop, choral, gospel, heavy metal, R&B among others.  “We are so honored to have such an accomplished artist as Professor Moore to lead our program this year,” says Stacey Nickson, director of the Center for Educational Outreach and Engagement. “This is such a unique opportunity for young aspiring performers to gain such a multicultural musical experience from traditional opera to Broadway to jazz, and to appreciate how diversity knows no bounds in song,” notes Dr. Nickson.

Previn Moore was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he graduated from the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts. He went on to study at Indiana University Bloomington. Over his career, he performed as a member of some of the elite musical ensembles throughout Germany and Austria, portraying roles ranging from Don Ottavio in the opera “Don Giovanni,” to Fats Waller in “Ain’t Misbehavin’.” He has also performed in Broadway classics “Evita,” “Hair,” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” In 2009, he played a number of roles in “Porgy and Bess” under Nicolaus Harnoncourt at Styriarte Graz and in the subsequent CD production. In 2013 he made his debut at La Strada Festival in Graz in “Faces of a Restless Spirit.”

Previn Moore sings in over a dozen languages and is a fluent German speaker having been a resident of both Germany and Austria for the past 25 years. After lecturing at the Hamburg, Germany Stage School of Music, Dance and Drama, he was appointed Professor of Voice Production and Singing at the Music and Arts University of Vienna where he has served over a decade.

“Professor Moore’s experience as an African-American performer and as a true world citizen is so inspiring for today’s youth, as it is for all of us,” says Dr. Nickson. “We can learn as much from his cultural expertise as well as his vast musical talents.”
