Annie Moses Band’s Christmas concert tour coming to Bayou Theater
News Release
Monday, November 26, 2018

HOUSTON — With award-winning, singer-songwriting parents, it’s no wonder Annie Moses and her five siblings grew up with music in such a prominent role in their lives. Becoming a professional musical entity as a family felt organic and natural, said Moses. The classical-crossover Nashville-based Annie Moses Band, known for their virtuosic strings and vocals, will perform a Christmas concert at University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Bayou Theater Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

“Our faith has always been very important to our family,” said Moses, who is a violinist and the band’s lead singer. “We glorify God in our craft, and it’s the reason for the excellence we pursued.”

Moses said that prior to formally creating a band in 2001, she and her next two siblings, violist Alex and cellist Benjamin, were accepted into the Juilliard Pre-College Program in New York when they were 16, 14 and 11, respectively. “Our younger three siblings assimilated later,” she said. “We changed and morphed, and the younger ones developed the skills they needed to incorporate into our sound.”

Moses said it had been a wild, creative journey. Among the band’s most important initiatives is the work of the Annie Moses Foundation, which seeks to empower the next generation of young artists as they navigate their artistic development. “The Foundation grew out of our calling to music,” she said. “So much of the world of music is consumed by darkness or ambition. It should be an expression of love and life. The goal in all the Foundation’s work is to raise up a new generation of artists who are deeply rooted in faith but highly skilled, and be a force for life and light in the world.”

Moses added that the band has had three PBS specials, three Top 10 classical crossover albums, and has played Carnegie Hall as well as the Grand Ole Opry, where the band is kicking off this year’s Christmas tour. “I’ve always said, our sound is New York trained but Nashville raised,” she said.

The Annie Moses Band, said Moses, is known for its Christmas music and is in “full force at Christmastime. We are a genre-defying band,” she said. “We are known for taking a traditional song and performing it in a new way. We have a string quartet, percussion and piano. It’s high energy and emotional. We want to bring people to the excitement and the deep meaning of Christmas.”
