Fred MoyerWhen earlier this summer the Wolfeboro Friends of Music announced the cancellation of our 85th live concert season, we also promised an alternative way to bring great music to you.  One result of our concentrated endeavor is a free one-hour broadcast video concert at 7:30 pm on Saturday, September 26, an “up-close-and-personal” encounter with Fred Moyer. This will be a classical and jazz piano performance leading off with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. The 4-camera video concert, created by Fred on the model he has successfully premiered this year, is available exclusively for the Wolfeboro Friends of Music for presentation to Wolfeboro and Lakes Region residents who wish to join an unlimited at-home audience.

Fred Moyer began piano studies at age seven with his mother Betsy Moyer, a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory.  At Indiana University, he studied with Menaham Pressler founder of the Beaux Arts Trio. Fred Moyer, a New Hampshire resident, in past years has performed concerts in hundreds of countries annually including Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Sydney Opera House, Windsor Castle, Tanglewood and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Yet his attention to varied audiences such as elder residences, music education centers and community orchestras, proves him to be a music ambassador par excellence.  His activities have been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities, the United States Information Service, the Paul Green Foundation, and many other grantors.

An avid computer programmer with many patents, Fred invented the MoyerCam that gives the audience a view of the pianist’s hands and keyboard projected onto the underside of the open piano lid.  His USolo software enables him to play piano concerts with orchestra accompaniment synchronized to his interpretations.  He also performs, accompanied with bass and drums, note-for-note transcriptions of great jazz pianists such as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Erroll Garner and Ahmad Jamal.

            In past seasons, WFOM depended on ticket sales, advertisers, sponsors and donors to sustain itself. This year WFOM granted our last year’s advertisers and sponsors a full additional year’s credit at no additional cost to them. WFOM would be immensely appreciative if any music lover/supporter would consider going to our website (wfriendsofmusic.org) and making a donation or mailing a donation to WFOM, PO Box 2056, Wolfeboro, NH 03894.
