The Moe seminar is open and free to the public and will run from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. in the lower level of Harman Chapel, room 103.
Raised in upstate New York as a dancer and musician, Moe attended the University of Buffalo on a dance scholarship before finishing his bachelor’s degree in music from the State University of New York (SUNY) in Oswego, where he studied with Dr. John-Scott Moir, who now teaches music at Bluefield College.
Moe followed Dr. Moir to Syracuse University, where he continued his vocal studies and went on to perform with the Syracuse Opera for two seasons before landing his first national Broadway tour in the role of Moose in “Crazy for You.” Moe went on to perform in two other Broadway tours, “Oklahoma!” and “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” as well as various regional theaters around the country.
After his years in theatre, Moe moved to Arizona to embark on a career in music education. While serving as a high school choral director, he also sang with the Phoenix Metropolitan Opera and performed as an opening act for various artists, including Alice Cooper and Jordin Sparks.
Moe continued his teaching career as a high school choral director in North Carolina, where his choirs were recognized with distinction at state festivals. Today, he teaches in public schools in the District of Columbia, where he also helps develop music curriculum, create and facilitate professional development opportunities, and hire music educators. Outside of his teaching, he is the national director for Imagine National Dance Challenge and a member of several boards of directors for community organizations in northern Virginia.
