Pianist Alexandria Le has been acclaimed for her “grace and power” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer) and as a “passionate and involved player...who is so adept at painting tonal pictures” (New York Concert Review). She enjoys a multi-faceted career as a soloist, chamber musician, teaching artist, and festival director.
After winning the prestigious Pro Musicis International Award and joining a distinguished roster of artists, she debuted in Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall and Pickman Hall in Cambridge, MA to glowing reviews. The Boston Musical Intelligencer summarizes her as "a warm, animated, outgoing, confident, hypertalented young pianist whose greatest asset is her incomparable power to communicate."
A sought-after chamber musician, she joined the highly-prolific Ensemble ACJW, the resident ensemble of Carnegie Hall (in partnership with the Juilliard School, the Weill Institute, and the New York Department of Education). She has enjoyed performing an extensive range of work with members of the world’s leading ensembles and acclaimed instrumental soloists and members of leading orchestras. Ms. Le is also winner of the 2012 Emerson String Quartet's Ackerman Chamber Music Competition.
Valuing her role as a music advocate and teaching artist, she has enjoyed connecting with audiences at Riker’s Island, Jewish Guild for the Blind, Phoenix House, just to name a few community venues. She has worked through Pro Musicis, Ensemble ACJW, and D.A.R.E. for her community outreach work.
She is the founding Artistic Director of the Las Vegas Wine and Music Festival. An alumnus of the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, she enjoys being co-director of its Piano Institute which brings creative professional development workshops to high school music majors. 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.
Ms. Le holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and SUNY Stony Brook, where is completing her doctorate. She credits her musical successes to Gilbert Kalish, Christina Dahl, Douglas Humpherys, Roger Bushell, her mother Michelle Le, and Erna Gulabyan.
