“Alex Moreno was last with us during our virtual fundraising Gala in December 2020," said April Evans, Uptown Executive Director. "Even though it was being streamed, he brought the house down! We're thrilled that audiences will be able to experience this full concert live on our Mainstage.”

Moreno is a Venezuelan singer whose voice explores different genres such as opera, jazz, musical, romantic ballads and Latin American music. He began his musical career at an early age studying instruments like piano, guitar and Venezuelan Cuatro. Later he studied operatic singing, acting, and theater direction. Moreno has won national and international singing and composition awards, and is the founder and director of the Venezuelan band “3 y Cuatro“ with whom he was pre-nominated for the 2018 Latin Grammy with the album “Que si.” He currently lives in Philadelphia and is creating a solo project fusing Caribbean and South American rhythms with great classics of universal music.
