April 1, 2019

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Roger D. Moore, who has been a great supporter of contemporary music in Canada for many years. A computer scientist and philanthropist, he was a well-known presence at Toronto musical events, often excited to share his knowledge of composers and artists. Roger generously supported the CMC’s Toronto Emerging Composers Award which had a dramatic impact on the artistic growth and career development of award alumni.
