“One of my first auditions was in 2002 for Robert Moir. He engaged me to sing with the Pittsburgh Symphony immediately. In the years to come, he introduced me to important conductors such as Manfred Honeck, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Richard Hickox, Andrew Davis, and Martin Haselböck to mention a few. This led to engagements in Europe and the United States. He was very helpful in advising regarding repertoire and career strategy. Robert Moir is very well-connected and respected by conductors, promoters, singers and instrumentalists both in Europe and in the US. His knowledge of the symphonic, as well as vocal and choral repertoire is most impressive. In addition, he is honest, kind, and very committed; the projects he created for the Pittsburgh Symphony were always original, inspiring and successful with the public.”
