United States, Eugene Oregon Harp
A quirky and engaging performer, harpist and actor Rosanna Moore is quickly making a name for herself as an innovative performer and storyteller. She is a tenured member of the Rochester Philharmonic, and performs with a number of ensembles, such as Ensemble Signal, Lake George Music Festival, Slee Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes and all around NY state and, more recently, the Pacific Northwest. In addition, she is an active chamber musician with her chamber ensembles: Sticks&Strings, Trio Alexander and Hats+Heels. As an actress she works as a narrator and voiceover artist, often combining the two art forms wherever possible.
Moore actively performs internationally and won accolades for her performances with the World Harp Festival, Marcel Tournier and Tierra47 competitions. Her writings have recently been published by both Harp Column and Contemporary Music Review.
As a professional composer collector, Rosanna’s passion for new music has led to a collection of new concerti, solo and chamber works. She is often consulted by composers and regularly gives workshops on writing for the harp. One upcoming project will be a new concerto for the Electric Delta Harp written by Grammy Award Winner DJ Sparr. She is also a harpist and advisor for The Future Blend Project.
In addition to performing, Rosanna is also Instructor of Harp/ Musician in Residence at the University of Oregon and the Harp Instructor at Opus Ithaca. In these roles, she works to bring the harp to as many students as possible and teaches students of all ages and abilities. She is the host and co-founder of the Soundweavers Podcast, a podcast dedicated to exploring the trials and tribulations of small ensemble musicianship in the gig economy.
Rosanna recently completed her Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at the Eastman School of Music, with a minor in theatre. During her studies, she was gratefully supported by the Eileen Malone Scholarship. She previously obtained her Masters Degree at Eastman and her undergraduate at the Royal Northern College of Music. Her wonderful mentors throughout the years have been Kathleen Bride and Eira Lynn Jones. Her research into music and theatre won her honorable mention in Eastman’s Lecture Recital Prize, was presented in a workshop with Lilac94 at the AHS Institute in 2019, and led her to be invited to perform at the rescheduled World Harp Congress in Cardiff, 2022.
