“I’m very lucky to have worked closely with Robert Moir over many seasons in Pittsburgh.  He has an undying passion for symphonic music and a true gift for inventive programming.  His Composer of the Year program is remarkable: a year-long focus on one composer that thoughtfully weaves new works throughout the entire season.  It is a model every orchestra should follow.  Additionally he has a special gift for identifying talent on the podium and for sensing how the musicians respond.  Bob’s insights are invaluable in both standard rep and new music, and in both administration and in artist booking.​”
