“We are excited that The Annie Moses Band will bring their newest show, ‘The Art of the Love Song’ to the Crosby Theater,” Williams said. ‘It’s their newest creation and features many of the greatest love songs ever written.”

“The Art of the Love Song” will include favorites such as “Just An Old Fashioned Love Song” and “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.”

Williams said the siblings that make up the Annie Moses Band began training at a young age, first in classical music that included the Juilliard School. Their music experience expanded into a variety of genres including folk, bluegrass and pop.

The sibling band has played to audiences around the world in record-breaking numbers of airings on PBS and on stages as diverse as Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.

The Annie Moses Band combines the best of beloved genres in a style that unifies audiences young and old, classical connoisseurs and roots enthusiasts, jazz aficionados and bluegrass buffs.

“Their music is outstanding,” Williams said. “The Troy Arts Council encourages everyone who enjoys great music and outstanding arts entertainment to join us Tuesday night for the Annie Moses Band concert at the Claudia Crosby Theater.”
