LOVELL — Keyboard artist Dan Moore will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts on Christian Hill Road.

Although he specialized in the organ when he studied at the Boston Conservatory, Moore loves the unique qualities of different keyboard instruments and styles, and he plays them all. In his youth he played hymns in Sunday school, but also performed in rock bands, high school musicals and as accompanist to a chorus. He still regularly accompanies the Choral Art Society in Portland.

Perhaps the most unusual item in his musical resumé: Ten years as a circus musician, touring New England with the Shrine Circus.

“The greatest fun,” he said, “was improvising while the good clowns were doing their shtick.”

Among his other professional activities, Moore serves as music director at the Lovell United Church of Christ, where his responsibilities include directing and accompanying the choir.

Tickets will be sold at the door for $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and younger.
