Meet ORS’ New Managing Director

The Orchestral Recital Series of Tacoma is proud to announce that AJ Moore will be serving as ORS’ Managing Director from February 2021 to June 2022. AJ has been working with ORS since May 2020, and has proved to be a great asset to the team.

Hello ORS supporters and music lovers!

My name is AJ Moore and I am so excited to be able to continue working with Orchestral Recital Series of Tacoma, now in the position of Managing Director. With this new role, my duties have expanded to allow me to better serve everyone involved with ORS – students, teachers, families, Board members, our lovely donors and sponsors, and everyone else involved at each point of what ORS does. It is very inspiring to see participation in music even through the pandemic, and ORS is a great place to keep playing. I personally play flute with Pacific Lutheran University, where I am a student. Watch a video of myself and former ORS student Reid Wolch perform below!

Some of my major projects with ORS over the next few months include completing my work of refreshing our “look” – from our website to our Facebook and including our physical materials. I also am here to manage our processes, to ensure that our programs and your experience with ORS happens without a hitch. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or thoughts you may have. I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you and everyone else who makes ORS’ work possible.

I want to encourage our incredible student musicians to consider performing in the Spring Orchestral Recitals – the event promises to be one you aren’t going to want to miss. There are many different ways to participate that you will hear all about on the fifteenth of this month. Again, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about ORS or our programs! My email address is, and general questions or inquiries can also be directed to

For those of you in the Tacoma area, stay safe in this impending snow!

With the love of music,
AJ Moore
ORS Managing Director
