Lisle Moore

Known more for his music than his name, Lisle Moore is not only a prodigy of small town living but the great great-grandson of Robert Elsberry. Moore, now of Highland, Utah is the grandson of Genevieve and Wendell Brumagin and son of Danielle Brumagin Moore, who graduated from Elsberry High School in 1964.

Although many folks may not recognize his name, they most certainly will recognize his music. Moore has directed many themes heard on television today, such as the NBA on ESPN theme song and Judge Judy. He has also composed music for such films as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Flyboy’s and the theatrical music for the Spiderman trailer. Moore was even asked to compose the music for the 2010 World Cup South Africa and soon the 2014 World Cup Brazil.

“As a small child I would spend the summers with my grandparents in Elsberry, which is how I became familiar with the community. Actually, I believe my grandfather owned the old clothing store on Main Street called Brumagin Clothing,” said Moore. “I got into this line of work because I was heavily influenced and inspired by my Uncle, from my grandmother’s side of the family, who was an orchestra conductor in Europe and also by my father who was also a conductor and strongly involved in musical education for many years.”

Moore explained that even from a young age he showed a love for the art. To the point where when he hit high school he was sent to Interlochen Academy for Arts where he studied jazz piano and later received a scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
