JoAnna Moses, mezzo-soprano, earned her Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Vocal Music from Berea College. She is originally from Williamsburg, KY where she started her musical journey singing gospel music, eventually joining the Colonel Strings Bluegrass ensemble. Mrs. Moses used her time at Berea to further her classical studies, focusing on opera, musical theatre and choral studies. She was a member of the Berea College Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, Black Music Ensemble and Women’s Chorus, where she also served as a teaching assistant and student conductor for three years.

Berea provided many performance opportunities for Mrs. Moses to perform scenes in roles such as Adelaide (Guys and Dolls), Julie (Showboat), Maria (West Side Story), Cathy (The Last Five Years), Augusta (The Ballad of Baby Doe), and Third Lady (Die Zauberflöte). In 2008, she had the oppurtunity to perform select scenes from various Mozart operas in Salzburg, Austria. These roles included Dorabella (Cosi fan Tutte), Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), and Countess Rosina Almaviva (Le Nozze di Figaro). In 2011, she was invited to participate in the AllTech Vocal Scholarship Competition at the University of Kentucky. She was awarded the Addington and Mills Musicianship Award. Currently, Mrs. Moses performs as a vocalist in the local Americana act, Kevin Dalton and the Tuesday Blooms.
