Moore will sing six songs, dance to two songs and perform two theatrical scenes. Some of her pieces include “Climbing Uphill” from The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown, “I Want to Go to Hollywood” from Grand Hotel by Maury Yeston and “Love/Sick” by John Cariani. Having spent the past year thinking and preparing for this recital, Moore said, “Even though it’s my recital, there are so many people I’m thankful for who have helped me out and have helped prepare me for my performances.”

Assisting Moore in her recital will be Amaya Hardin, a junior musical theatre major from Little Rock, Ark. Also accompanying Moore will be pianist Kristen La Madrid, coordinator of accompanists for the Division of Music. To prepare for her recital, Moore was coached by Dr. Candice Aipperspach, associate professor for the Division of Music. Moore also received guidance from her acting coach, Claudia Beach.

Aipperspach was enthusiastic and supportive of Moore throughout the process, saying, “Maddy is a sensitive performer with an amazing voice. She knows how to marry artistry with her vocal instrument!”
