Gerald Martin Moore

We are pleased to announce that Gerald Martin Moore will join the Yale faculty this Fall (September, 2020) as Director of Yale Opera and Coordinator of Vocal Studies for the School of Music. “Known throughout the world for his pedagogical work with some of opera’s most accomplished and celebrated artists, Mr. Moore brings to Yale his passion for teaching voice and preparing those young singers who will soon be introduced to audiences worldwide. His artistic direction and teaching will enable us to further strengthen Yale Opera’s legacy of excellence that was so thoughtfully nurtured by Doris Yarick-Cross,” Yale School of Music Dean Robert Blocker said.

For the last several years, Mr. Moore has served as artistic associate of Carnegie Hall’s SongStudio program led by celebrated soprano Renée Fleming. He has been engaged as vocal consultant to the conductor for major opera productions at the Edinburgh International Festival, English National Opera, La Scala, Opéra National de Paris, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, and others. Among his many master class engagements are the Merola Opera Program, Los Angeles Opera Young Artist Program, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Additionally, Mr. Moore has extensive experience and credits in his professional work as a collaborative artist for opera and recital recordings and film and television productions. 

Prior to September, Gerald will be on campus several times to work with his new colleagues and begin planning for the 2020-2021 academic year and the performance season. Please join us in welcoming Gerald Martin Moore to the Yale School of Music.
