Caitlin Moore, mezzo-soprano, is known for her elegant and confident stage presence in concert, opera and musical settings. She has been praised for her "magnificent vocal and dramatic talent" (La Presse) and "aplomb and distinction" (Opera Canada). In addition to her active performance career, Moore has served on the voice faculties of Covenant College and Chattanooga State Community College.

She received a Master of Music in Voice and Opera Performance at the Schulich School of Music, McGill University and a Bachelor of Music and Music Education at Lee University. Recently, she was honored to be a 2021 National Association of Singing Intern and currently serves as the NATS CO-WY co-vice president and auditions chair. 

Moore was certified in all three levels at Shenandoah University’s Contemporary Commercial Music Vocal Pedagogy Institute in 2019 as a University of Northern Colorado Graduate Student Association Grant Winner. She attended New England Conservatory’s Acoustic Vocal Pedagogy Workshop and Online Teaching Technology Workshop in 2020 as a Lee University Young Alumni Grant Winner.

She is a dynamic advocate for arts outreach having served in administrative positions with such organizations as The Glimmerglass Festival, L'Opéra de Montréal, Opera Tennessee and the Tennessee Chamber Chorus. Currently, Moore is a Doctor of Arts candidate in voice performance with a secondary in voice pedagogy at the University of Northern Colorado and runs a thriving online private voice studio. She spends her free time with her family, John, and their cat, Lettuce, enjoying outdoor adventuring.

Moore believes voice practice is a holistic endeavor that addresses the entire person. As a voice teacher, it is her great privilege to not only help students acquire technical knowledge and skills, but to assist them in discovering confidence, work ethic and goal setting, and helping them determine what is important and unique to them as artists. She implements these beliefs in her studio in a number of ways.

The most important gift a performer can have is singing and acting from a place of authenticity. From a perspective of vocal health, Moore equips and encourages students to have freedom to explore their unique voice and artistry. Additionally, experimenting with diverse styles and colors allows students the ability to speak a variety of musical languages, an important asset in today’s musical world.

Moore teaches through a basis of vocal science, anatomy and acoustics. With a thorough understanding of functionality, students can confidently and consistently address issues with success. Having a scientific approach to technique does not detract from artistry, but instead allows the singer to efficiently solve problems and subsequently focus on extra-technical issues.

Moore’s professional aspiration is to become the best voice teacher and performer she can be by seeking out the resources and communities to do so. Her personal aspiration is to live a worthwhile life by being fully present in the communities she is a part of and cultivating persistent curiosity. Through the practice of teaching voice, she is privileged to pursue both of these aspirations.
