Although the Moore Fund first funded a fellowship in '04-'05, it hasn't been up on the world wide web. We are in the process of getting a website DouglasMooreFund.org going and it will go live by the end of the month.
The website and blog will be of interest to aspiring composers and librettists who want to learn more about breaking into the fields of opera and musical theater. It will also be of interest to fans of Douglas Moore's work and also a group of composers associated with him, including Jack Beeson and John Kander. Moore had a big influence on a generation of composers through his work producing opera at the Columbia Opera Workshop. You may be surprised to learn that the workshop premiered operas by composers such as Britten, Menotti, Thompson, and Ward.
