Music Director
_________________________

Hilarie Clark Moore's curiosity and desire to learn everything she can about music - its history, the theory, and performance practices - has motivated her to approach music from   

all angles. Her education blends both music academia and performance. At the University of Connecticut, she received her Bachelor of Music Degree on French horn performance in 1985. In 1991, she earned her Ph.D. in music theory from Yale University. As a conductor, she directs the Chamber Music by the River, the New London Community Orchestra, and the Cheshire Symphony Orchestra. In the past, she has directed the SUNY Orange Community Orchestra and the SUNY Orange Chamber Ensemble. She has also served as assistant conductor of the Hudson Opera Theatre, conducted Sweeney Todd for SummerStar Theatre, and has been a guest conductor for Cortlandt Chamber Orchestra and the Willamantic Orchestra.
