Chris Moore currently serves as Director of Athletic Bands and Coordinator of Percussion Studies at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia where he has been since 1995. “I am extremely honored to be reunited with Spirit of Atlanta,” states Chris. “Spirit is an organization so dear to my heart with such a rich history in Drum Corps International, and in our community.” Mr. Moore has a long association with Spirit of Atlanta having marched 1980-82, and 1984. He served on staff in 1989 and 1990. “I look forward to working with an energized board of directors, engaging our incredible alumni base and assembling an outstanding design and educational team. I hope that team will give our members the very best experience.”

Chris holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Jacksonville State University where he was a four-year member of the Marching Southerner’s drumline. He earned a Master of Music degree from East Carolina University where he was as a percussion graduate assistant in the School of Music and for the Marching Pirates.

Encouraged by the work of the new Board of Directors so far Chris is excited to begin planning for the 2016 season. “The hiring process has already begun for an impressive design, instructional and operational staff. It is our goal to bring a qualified and enthusiastic team to further advance a program that provides one of the best leadership, character and growth opportunities for youth we can imagine.”
