Composer and electric guitar soloist D. J. Sparr, a native of Westminster, Maryland, is one of the preeminent composer-performers of his generation. His eclectic composition style has been described as “pop-Romantic… iridescent and wondrous” (Mercury News) and “suits the boundary erasing spirit of today’s new-music world” (New York Times). In 2011, Sparr was named one of NPR listener’s favorite 100 composers under the age 40. D. J. was the Young American Composer-in-Residence with the California Symphony from 2011-14 and was Composer-in-Residence with the Richmond Symphony from 2009-11.

Award Winning Soprano Aundi Marie Moore is a proud native of Chesapeake, Virginia, and quickly establishing herself as one of America's leading young sopranos, receiving accolades from audience and critics alike. Celebrated for being the 2015 winner of The American Prize in Voice, Ms. Moore was recently hailed for possessing a voice of “clarion beauty” (The Washington Post) with “Tender effect…compelling” (Opera News), and noted for her “Bluesy Humming with a honeyed tone” (New York Times). She was singled out by The Richmond Times, which reported “Now to the spectacular: Throughout the program, Moore was riveting- a dazzling stage presence. Her lyric soprano, more than powerful enough to fill the hall, displayed a shimmering luster, effortless flexibility and a remarkable range of sensed that this woman could sing anything in any style, with stunning results.” The 2016 Bronze Medalist at the American Traditions Competition in Savannah, Georgia, Ms. Moore can be heard during the current season with the Signature Symphony in Tulsa, Virginia Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, and the Virginia Arts Festival.
