Your Bio

MICHAEL MOORE – Tuba and Artistic Director – was born in Blackwell, Okla., but raised in Decatur, GA. He joined the Atlanta Symphony in 1968 and at the age of 18 was the youngest tubist in any major symphony. Mr. Moore received a B. Mus. Lit. with a minor in composition from Ga. State U. He now serves on the faculty there, at Emory and at Kennesaw State U. He teaches tuba and euphonium, coaches and conducts the Emory Brass Ensemble. He has contributed numerous arrangements to the brass quintet and solo electric tuba repertoire. Mr. Moore is the founder of the Atlanta Brass Society and the ABS Press. He has performed the Vaughan Williams and Greggson Tuba Concertos, and has played hundreds of performances of Tubby the Tuba. In April 2005, he performed the Vaughan Williams Tuba Concerto with the ASO, Robert Spano conducting. He had been guest tubist with the Chicago Symphony. He was guest artist and conductor at Tubilustrium 2005 and 2006 in Cosenza, Italy. His studies have been with Arnold Jacobs and Ed Kleinhammer of the Chicago Symphony, Ward Fearn of the Philadelphia Orchestra, William Hill, and his father, former ASO tubist, E.W. Moore. This is Mr. Moore’s forty-sixth year as a member of the Atlanta Symphony Brass Quintet. He is also Treasurer of the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians. His wife, Paula Peace is Artistic Director of the Atlanta Chamber Players (some of these galleries and pix are hers). Daughter Erin is a graduate of Lawrence University Conservatory of Music.

Cameras used in these galleries are Panasonic/Lumix LZ5K and FZ20. Except for noise at high ISOs, I love these cameras- long zooms, wide open lenses, Leica optics (on the FZ0) and that incredible image stabilization! The later shots are done with iPhone 4 and 5- "the best camera is the one you have with you."
