The Orville Moore Memorial Award

The Orville Moore Memorial Award

The Orville Moore Memorial Award is 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 professor at Lamont School of Music.
