Moeckel has earned acclaim throughout Europe, South America and the United States as both a soloist and concert artist.
The German-born Moeckel's talent showed at an early age, when he began performing first as a violinist in the United States. At the age of 11, he became principal soprano soloist of the Vienna Boys Choir. He resumed his violin studies in his teens and graduated with honors from the Mozarteum in Salzburg when he was 19. He then became co-concert master of Germany's Ulm Philharmonic and remained there for three seasons.
Upon his return to America, he became concert master of the Tucson Symphony, and then took the same position with the Phoenix Symphony.
The orchestra will perform music by composers Aaron Copland, Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn.
St. Luke's is located at 2000 Shepherd's Lane, just off Ruger Road and Highway 89 in Prescott.
