Aundi Marie Moore


American soprano Aundi Marie Moore’s recent highlights include her debut at Dutch National Opera as Mother Blue, a role she also sang at Toledo Opera. She appeared as Mother Abbess The Sound of Music at Virginia Festival, and she joined California’s Pacific Choral for their European tour in a program of Price and Haydn. Miss Moore was awarded the 2023 Sphinx Organization’s Award for Excellence, an acknowledgement of her artistic achievements, her work ethic, and her spirit of determination.

Previous career successes on the opera stage include her highly lauded appearance as Strawberry Woman in the Metropolitan Opera’s production of Porgy and Bess, Donna Elvira Don Giovanni at L’Opéra de Monte Carlo in her international operatic debut, Nedda I Pagliacci at Sarasota Opera, Mimi La Boheme in Italy at the Amalfi Coast Festival, Serena Porgy and Bess at Atlanta Opera and at Virginia Opera, Young African American Soprano in Ricky Ian Gordon’s world premiere of Rappahannock County at Virginia Opera, Soprano 2 in the US premier of Michael Nyman’s Facing Goya at Spoleto Festival, and the role of Odessa Clay in the world premiere of D. J. Sparr’s Approaching Ali commissioned by Washington National Opera.



“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 color. From Puccini’s “Un bel di” from “Madama Butterfly” to “My Man’s Gone Now’ from “Porgy and Bess” to “Moon River”, one sensed that this woman could sing anything in any style, with stunning results.” –Gene Harris/ Richmond Times

“Aundi Marie Moore nearly walked off with the opera in the supporting role of Ali’s mother, Odessa. Her radiant soprano lit up the Terrace Theater even when she was just softly humming; her portrayal was remarkably detailed and touching. Sparr stepped into cliche territory when putting an obvious jazz/gospel spin on Odessa’s vocal lines, but Moore made them sound perfectly natural. A stirring performance.” –Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun
