// Alexa Belgrave Music
A recent graduate pianist from the University of Toronto’s Bachelor of Music Jazz program, Alexa Belgrave has started to make her mark in the community. She has performed with her R&B and jazz collaborative project, Moodset, at the first World of Jazz festival in Brampton in September 2017 and various venues in Toronto since September 2018. Her compositions were also 2 of 4 selected for recording in Desert Fish Studios from the jazz studies department at U of T in April 2018. With a background in classical studies (completed her ARCT in 2014), an interest in composition and an interactive and rhythmic ‘comping style, Alexa has had the opportunity to create, collaborate and be a side person to multiple projects in different idioms (from jazz to pop to musical theater).
Her collaborative trio with Caleb Klager (bass) and Madeleine Ertel (trumpet) was showcased at the annual Ken Page Gala in November 2017 and her duo project ‘Anima’ with Jacqueline Teh (vocalist) has performed in restaurants and jazz vespers concerts in the GTA. The trio performs originals and arrangements of standards in a non-traditional trio format with a focus on melodic interplay and general openness while the duo focuses on originals in a more modern jazz and r&b infused scope.
