Dr. Alexandria Le
Founder, Executive Artistic Director
Dr. Alexandria Le has been highly praised as “a warm, animated, outgoing, confident, hypertalented pianist” (Boston Musical Intelligencer) who is also a “passionate and involved player” (New York Classical Review). She enjoys a multi-faceted career as a concertizing pianist, teaching artist, and curator. Her performances has brought her from the world’s leading stages, like Carnegie Hall, to where music is needed most, like the jails of Riker’s Island.
Equally accomplished as a soloist and chamber musician, she gave her solo debut in Carnegie Hall as prizewinner of the prestigious Pro Musicis International Award and, a few months following, won a coveted position with Carnegie Hall’s resident chamber ensemble. A winner of the 2012 Emerson String Quartet's Ackerman Chamber Music Competition, she is a sought-after collaborator and has enjoyed performing an extensive range of work with members of the world’s leading ensembles and acclaimed instrumental soloists. Additionally, she has held exclusive collaborative piano positions at the Banff Centre of the Arts in Canada.
Dr. Le is highly engaged as an advocate of arts in our society, most recently as founding Executive Artistic Director of Notes with a Purpose, which produces creative music programming for diverse communities around Las Vegas. This was inspired from her two-year fellowship with Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble ACJW, where she dedicated 200 hours of classroom music instruction at an inner-city elementary school in Brooklyn and presented over 60 outreach performances in community venues around New York City. Further, she directs the Las Vegas Music and Wine Festival and the Las Vegas Academy Piano Institute.
A native of Las Vegas, she garnered sixteen first-prize awards before graduation of high school, and her live performances and interviews were frequently broadcasted over KNPR Las Vegas. She was a featured soloist with all of Southern Nevada's orchestras including the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
After receiving a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music, Dr. Le went on to receive a Master of Music and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University.
She became a Yamaha Artist in April 2015, one of fewer than 80 listed classical pianists on their international roster. More information at www.alexandriale.com.
