The Orville Moore Memorial Award

Named for a Denver-born baritone 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 Orville Moore Memorial Award with funds from her estate. The first Orville Moore award was given in 1992 to Larry Glenn, a former professor at Lamont School of Music.

The Orville Moore Memorial Award is the funds given to a former grant recipient who performs at the Orville Moore concert fundraiser. Traditionally held in the fall, the selection of the performer is made by the board or committee.

NEW BOOK RELEASE

The year was 1920. “The Allied Arts was founded at a time of surging growth in Denver to encourage artistic aspirations. Supporters, Jean Cranmer, Anne Evans, Burnham Hoyt, and others, believed that encouraging the energy and intelligence of the young would determine a luminous future for Denver.”

Allen Young, a music critic in Denver and author of Opera in Central City and Exotic and Irrational: Opera in Denver 1879-2006, crafted The History of the Allied Arts – 1920-1995 like an insightful storyteller. Read about the careers of sculptors and singers and visual artists
who left marks on the art world. The book convinces readers that financial support does indeed make the difference for pre-professional artists.
