Making her mark on the Philadelphia jazz scene and beyond, Alita Moses has been critically acclaimed as one of the city's young artists to watch. Since winning the 2014 Montreux Jazz Vocal Competition in Montreux, Switzerland, she returned there to attend the 1st Montreux Jazz Academy working with greats such as Patti Austin, Sonny Emory, Lee Ritenour and Charles Lloyd. In July, she returned to open for Al Jarreau in the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival.
Her ambitiousness is evident in her work with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Pops Orchestra as well as solo artists and bands such as Larry McKenna, Matt McAndrew, ILL DOOTS, Steve Davis, Joel Frahm and many others. A recent graduate of the University of the Arts, Alita was a recipient of The President's Award. In 2016 she will tour with a New York-based pianist, Walter Fischbacher, and his quartet throughout Europe. Whether on the stage or in the studio, she brings a natural warmth to each performance and astounds audiences with grace and a musical maturity beyond her years.
