Lyle W. Moore conducted the Gonzaga Glee Club for 30 years and began touring with the Glee Club in 1932. It was common for the Glee Club to log more than 5000 miles a year and their adventures included a performance with Bing Crosby on ABC radio in 1949. Lyle Moore taught his students both the joy of the fine arts and the importance of hard work and discipline. Many of the students who benefited from Moore's skills as a teacher and mentor established a scholarship in his memory.

Gonzaga is a Catholic, Jesuit, liberal arts university dedicated to the education of the whole person. GU provides a nationally-commended education founded on classical principles, with a commitment to diversity.
