More Music @ The Moore
“I liked the way every single person up there is a completely different individual from way different backgrounds but music brings us all together and creates an unexplainable bond and appreciation for art.” – MM@M Musician, Age 18
MORE MUSIC @ THE MOORE is a young artist development program for selected young musicians representing diverse music genres. The program provides young artists training and rehearsal time with professional musicians, production and promotional support, and the opportunity to perform at a professional venue, The Moore Theatre. Artists are selected through an audition process.
STG is thrilled to welcome Meshell Ndegeocello back as the Music Director of the 13th annual More Music @ The Moore. A fearsome bassist and prolific songwriter, Ndegeocello has been nominated for 10 Grammy Awards, released 10 studio albums, and remains one of few women who writes her own music and leads her band. Ndegeocello will join the stage for one collaborative number with the young artists.
On her role as Music Director for More Music 2013, Ndgeocello says:
"I am flattered to think I might have something to offer another generation of visionary musical minds, of players, and writers. When I choose to teach it is not so much to pass on what I do, or think I know, but to pass on the possibility of music, the opportunity to be, make, hear something new, unique and individual. At the same time, I always say that music is a fellowship, not a competition, though the industry doesn't foster that much. I love the idea of facilitating one person's sound and encouraging the support of their band, community, the fellowship."
More Music @ The Moore will be streamed live to sick children and teens in hospitals by non-profit organization Melodic Caring Project, one of STG's valued community partners.
