 Update me on new releases by Moore

Grace Moore (1898 - 1947)

When she was two, Grace Moore’s family relocated to the city of Knoxville, later moving again to Jellico, where she spent her adolescence. She sang in a church choir and after high school studied briefly at Ward-Belmont College in Nashville before enrolling at the Wilson Greene Music School in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

After making her professional debut in a recital at the National Theatre, Washington DC, in 1919, Moore moved to New York City, where she sang in a nightclub to pay for vocal lessons with Mario Marafioti. She appeared in the shows Suite Sixteen, Just a Minute and Up in the Clouds, before making her solo debut in the 1920 edition of the revue Hitchy-Koo, which featured music by Jerome Kern. Moore then sang in Town Gossip before travelling to Paris to train for an operatic career. When her money ran out, she returned to Broadway to star in Irving Berlin’s Music Box Revue of 1923, singing ‘An Orange Grove in California’ as orange blossom perfume was wafted throughout the theatre. Returning to France in 1925, she was recommended by the soprano Mary Garden to the operatic coach Richard Barthelemy.
