Heeding his musical muse, Edward Kelsey Moore and his cello will be in the orchestra for Too Hot To Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah, being presented for just two Chicago concerts on January 18th and 19th at the spectacular Auditorium Theatre.
An exciting reinvention of Handel’s Messiah, Too Hot To Handel brings this classic piece to life in a transformative way; fusing two of the most distinct music styles – Jazz and Gospel – while weaving in Blues, Swing, Classical and even Scat singing. It is a toe-tapping, hand-clapping performance that ends with everyone on their feet for the Hallelujah Chorus! For more information

The New York Times Bestselling novel The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is the marvelous tale of Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean...

With wit, style, and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together four intertwined love stories, three devoted allies, and two sprightly earthbound spirits in a warmhearted novel that celebrates friendship and second chances.
