He has served as clinician, guest conductor, and organist for choir festivals across the nation.

Moore was previously chair of the Music Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut and has served on the Executive Board of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Choral Directors Association. He has also served as a consultant in organ design for several churches in Connecticut.
