12-Year-Old Becomes Youngest Composer of New York City Orchestra


Grace Moore, a 12-year old girl from New York, has made history as one of the youngest composers to join the New York City Philharmonic Orchestra.



Moore, who is a seventh-grade student at Poly Prep in Dyker Heights, is also enrolled in the organization’s Very Young Composers program. There, participants from the age of 8 are taught to create music.


The composition that Moore created for the program made a world premiere in a live performance by the NY Philharmonic in October.


Moore, who started showing her passion for music at the age of 2 when her mother gave her a piano, has showcased extraordinary talent.


Moreover, Moore hopes that as a woman of color, she can inspire others to create and appreciate music.


“I hope everyone follows their hobbies and do what they love,” Moore told PIX11.
