Okanagan soprano Jenaviève Moore will present a recital at UBC Okanagan on Wednesday, March 25. Moore will be accompanied by renowned pianist Roslyn Frantz in this UBC Okanagan Minds and Music Series free public presentation.
Moore grew up in Oliver, B.C., and has studied piano, flute and voice, excelling in all of them. By age 12, she was winning local and provincial music competitions for flute and piano. In 2000 and 2001 she won both the Junior and Intermediate Voice categories in the B.C. music festival. Moore has received four medals from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, for obtaining the highest exam marks in B.C.
At age 19, Moore was invited to be the guest soloist for the Messiah with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. In the spring of 2008, she won the Open Voice Class for the Ontario Provincial Festival, and continued on to win First Runner-Up at the Canadian National Music Festival. Last fall, Moore performed three concerts with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra.
“Jenaviève’s voice is beautifully set up with a clear timbre and excellent flexibility,” says Rosemary Thomson, music director of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra. “Most impressive is her understanding of and ability to communicate the text. She positively embraced the stage and captivated our audience.”
Moore already has ARCTs (the highest level of achievement at the Royal Conservatory) in both voice and flute, and she is presently working towards her ARCT in piano, studying at the Royal Conservatory with teacher Helga Tucker.
The March 25 recital is free and the public is invited to attend. It is from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in UBC Okanagan’s Student Services Centre theatre SSC 026.
