Alita Moses is an extraordinary new talent on the international jazz scene.
The daughter of accomplished operatic baritone and voice professor Frederic “Fritz” Moses and Broadway performer Janelle Robinson (Mary Poppins, Oklahoma), Alita Moses was born to sing. Moses grew up playing cello, guitar and piano and sitting in on her father’s classes at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music. The young musician has already accumulated multiple accolades, following in the footsteps of the soulstresses who've inspired her—Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson and Billie Holiday.
As a senior at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Penn., Moses won First Prize at the 2014 Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in Switzerland. She has performed at the Essentially Ellington Jazz Competition in New York City, with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra in Connecticut and with various R&B, indie and pop bands in the Philadelphia area. In May 2016, she completed a tour of Europe, selling out all 29 concerts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
