English born singer Amy Moore was one of Europe’s most distinguished Lyric Sopranos before she immigrated to Australia in 2015. Accomplished as both a soloist and ensemble singer, Amy has sung with leading European ensembles such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (Boyce's Solomon); The Gabrieli Consort (Purcell's Odes), the Hanover Band (Bach's St John Passion and Handel’s Messiah), Ensemble Modern and Intercontemporain, in Paris (Enno Poppe’s Interzone), the Edvard Grieg Kor (Mrs Paskova in Janacek’s The Cunning Little Vixen, and Iseut in Frank Martin’s Le Vin Herbe) and the Bergen Nasjonale Opera (Marco Polo, The Golden Cockerel and Fidelio) in Norway. Amy's vast repertoire has featured on dozens of CD recordings highlighting a special focus on the early music and contemporary music arenas.
Since arriving in Australia, Amy has performed solo concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (Messiah), Australian Brandenburg Orchestra (Mozart Requiem and Handel Dixit Dominus), Bach Akademie Australia (Ascension Oratorio BVW 11), The Choir of St James’ King Street (Haydn Creation, Handel L’allegro, il penseroso ed il moderato, Messiah, St John Passion) and the Australian Baroque Brass (Jauchzet, Gott BWV 51).
Her performance at the 2019 Canberra International Music Festival received warm reviews for her singing in Bach’s St John Passion and the role of Vikki in Andrew Schultz’s chamber opera, The Children’s Bach. As a Principal Artist with The Song Company Amy has recently performed Messiaen’s grandest song cycle, Harawi, Chants d’amour et de mort for several live performances and for the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 Amy's 2020 solo operatic debut in Medee with Pinchgut Opera had to be cancelled, however, Amy is looking forward to performing with the Acacia Quartet at the 2021 Bowral Autumn Music Festival in March and joining Pinchgut Opera for Platée later this year.
