Harold Moses is a New Age composer and violist who resides in a community of healing and performing artists in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado. His recordings, strong in classical structure yet with an obvious and appealing spiritual expression, have garnered highest accolades from those in the self-help and healing field.
An alumnus of the Curtis Institute of Music (Philadelphia) and the New School of Music (Philadelphia), Moses studied harmony and composition with Drs. Louis Martin, Myron Fink, and Robert Levine. He served as Assistant Principal Violist of the Denver Symphony Orchestra for eight years. Moses has orchestrated more than 150 scores for concert, theatre, and ceremony. His works include music for viola, chamber ensembles, symphony, and concert choir, and he is the founder and director of the StarHouse ensemble, a 48-voice community choir. Moses is also known for his viola improvisation and performs regularly with his wife Laura Hungerford (tamboura), with whom he created a "drone" tape that is being used for healing and meditation.
Moses regularly lectures on music as the universal language. He has performed his music with many inspirational speakers such as Gerald Jampolsky and Diana Cirincione (Love is Letting Go of Fear) and was the featured artist at Theater of the Mind, a thirteen-week series featuring Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. (Women Who Run With the Wolves.) He also composed and performed music for The Joy of Meditation, an audio-book collaboration with Salle Merrill Redfield. Moses' orchestrations are luxuriant and lavish; his music is known for its ability to nurture and elevate the spirit of the listener, and his music is regularly programmed on syndicated New Age music programs. As author and storyteller Clarissa Pinkola Estes observes, "Harold Moses is not only a musician, not only a composer. He has something more than talent, he has a great something inside. He and his enormous heart weep, strut, laugh out loud into and through his music, making us all come alive. We used to call this magic."
