Abby Moran was born and raised in Massachusetts and has become a Virginia resident more recently. She is currently pursuing her bachelor’s degree in music at the University of Mary Washington and loving every second. Her studies have been primarily focused on classical music, but include other styles, such as Broadway and Jazz. Abby has performed with many campus ensembles such as the UMW chorus, UMW chamber choir, The Fredericksburg singers and an on campus flute ensemble. This fall Abby has the incredible opportunity to perform at the local Jazz for Justice Concert!

To go along with her music studies Abby is also pursuing a master’s degree in education. She has always loved the idea of helping children express themselves and fall in love with music. Outside of her formal studies at UMW, Abby has been the music director of the on campus show choir, has been a part of the worship team at her church, Common Ground, and has been a volunteer mentor with a Christian youth outreach program called Young Life. When Abby isn’t playing music or singing she enjoys reading and going on hikes with her fiance, Drew.
