The Orville Moore Memorial Award

On April 30th The Allied Arts, Inc., hosted the Orville Moore Memorial Award Recital by Michael Hoffman. The award is named for Denver-born baritone, Orville Moore, who was assisted in 1950 by The Allied Arts, Inc. to pursue further studies of art song and German Lieder in New York. Else Replogle, a longtime friend of the organization, with the help of the Allied Arts board, created the award with funds from her estate.

Michael Hoffman Last summer, he attended SongFest in Los Angeles as a member of the Professional Program where he furthered his knowledge of song and performance practices with some of the world’s leading performers and pedagogues of the vocal repertoire. This wonderful privilege was made possible by The Allied Arts

Please note that new applications are due with a postmarked deadline of
August 15th, 2018. We look forward to supporting more artists.

The Allied Arts board heard recently from two of our past grantees.
