Alice Anne Moerk, Composer and Writer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in history and music.

A teacher for more than five decades, Dr. Moerk currently focused on using her knowledge in books and compositions. She is thrilled that all of her positions have given her the opportunity to get others interested in her passions; she has loved ancient history since high school and music for as long as she can remember. Generations in particular fascinate her; the series she is working on now, “Pastimes,” begins with one generation in the Middle Ages and moves through time generation to generation. The most recent book in that series is called “Rays of Gold,” and was released in April 2018. Her next novel, “Fire in Stone,” is set to be published in 2019.

On the music side of the spectrum, Dr. Moerk has been a composer-in-residence at the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church since 2009 and a professor emeritus at Fairmont State University, where she was a professor of music for 33 years, since 2000. Some of her more recent compositions include “An Appalachian Mother Goose,” the musical, “A Nose for Love,” and the operas, “The Flatwoods Monster” and “The Wise Woman.” She considers her greatest achievement, however, to be composing “Alianor” in 1997. She used an electronic voice changer in the one-person opera so she could switch from one character to the next, and used both medieval text and her own.
