Curating & Programming Festivals

As a consultant to curate and program a festival I will:

  • help you to define a clear theme (Paris in the 20s, single composer festivals, American music)
  • assist in developing festival budget
  • advise in programming orchestral concerts
  • design ancillary events (chamber music, exhibits, food and drink tastings, films, etc.)
  • engage artists, speakers, etc.
  • provide marketing and publicity content
  • provide pre-concert talks and presentations


RM_TortThumbI have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Robert Moir for many years and appreciate his many qualities and long experience in planning, programming, touring and recording.  With his great commitment, enthusiasm and love for music, as well as his numerous professional connections, I can recommend without reservation Robert Moir’s consultancy in a wide range of musical and artistic ventures.”

YoncaAs a veteran of the classical music industry, Bob Moir has a lot to offer junior artistic staff.  Working with him at the Pittsburgh Symphony has truly been a formative experience in my career. From management insights to direct industry expertise in season planning, artist relations and working with artist managers, I have learned and continue to learn from him.  Having led several projects (such as the Paris Festival) under his supportive but empowering guidance, I think he is a natural fit for consulting. He is still the first person I call when I need sound industry advice.”
