The Music of William ("Bill") Moyer

My father, Bill Moyer, is a composer at heart. Even when he writes text, he conducts as he reads what he has written to make sure it flows correctly. It's unfortunate that his work as trombonist and then personnel manager of the Boston Symphony (and also the time spent being a great Dad to his four kids) prevented him from composing more. From this page, you can hear some of his notable compositions and see his remarkably beautiful scores. Happy listening! - Fred Moyer
