Composer in Residence

Commissioned by the St. Augustine Orchestra to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act in keeping with the City’s multi-year 450th Commemoration,  Someday will be “previewed” as part of the Discover First America during the Let Freedom Ring Program by the composer, Bob Moore.   “Someday” is a symphonic reflection on the American Civil Rights Movement composed by Moore for the St. Augustine Orchestra.  Each of the five movements bears a quote from the history of humanity’s ongoing struggle with the concept of the rights of the individual. There will be quotes from the Bible, from relevant theologians of the American Civil War period and from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.  Moore will perform various passages featured in the composition and discuss with the audience the themes and impressions of the period and how they translate into the musical composition.
