Edward Kelsey Moore is an American musician and author. He received a Bachelor of Music degree from Indiana University, and a Master of Music degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook; his teachers included renowned cellists Janos Starker and Bernard Greenhouse.
For more than two decades,Moore has been a professional musician performing with a number of midwestern orchestras, including the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Chicago Philharmonic, and the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra. He is also principal cellist of the New Black Music Repertory Ensemble. He has played on many recordings, and toured nationally and internationally. In addition to performing, he has been a popular professor of music, training and nurturing a new generation of cello players.
During Moore's high school years, and onward into college, he experimented with writing short stories. As he finished his education, he set writing aside and focused on building a career in music. Many years later, as a member of a string quartet, Edward was hired to perform at a reception for the winners of a local writing contest. As he played background music Edward considered: "I could have sent in a story..." It was an inspiring event and within a few weeks he began writing again.
His short fiction has been published in many literary magazines including Indiana Review, African American Review, and Inkwell. His short story "Grandma and the Elusive Fifth Crucifix" was selected as an audience favorite from the Stories on Stage series produced by WBEZ in Chicago. It was broadcast locally, and over National Public Radio. The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is Moore's debut novel, and he is currently writing his second book. (From the author's website.)
