Moore gives life to the community through the arts

he doesn’t play an instrument, but Isabel Moore ’72 is one of the founders of the award-winning Bridgeton Symphony. She has devoted much of her time to the art and culture of South Jersey.

In the spring of 1984, the Symphony’s founding director came to Moore’s Greenwich home seeking to establish a professional-level group in the historic Bridgeton area. In just a few months, the Bridgeton Symphony gave its first concert at the Old Broad Street Church.

Moore and her husband, Jonathan, now live in the former Old Stone Tavern. Completely restored, reminders of its raucous watering hole past have been suppressed and more gentle memories are evoked. “Johnny and I try to hold time still in this house by sharing its history,” Moore says. The Research Club, a group founded in Greenwich in 1902, meets in Moore’s home each month. Afternoon tea is served to commemorate the burning of tea in Cumberland County in 1774.

The symphony and her home are not the extent of Moore’s involvement in local culture. She has also served on the Bicentennial Commission for Bridgeton, established the Bridgeton Antiquarian League, and assisted in the restoration of Bridgeton’s Nail House Museum, Moore also founded The Gallery in Bridgeton, which exhibits works by South Jersey artists.
