International award-winning pianist Alexandria Le is praised as “…a warm, animated, outgoing, confident, hypertalented pianist whose greatest asset is her ability to communicate” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Her multifaceted career brings her dynamic presence to the world’s most illustrious concert stages, like NYC’s Carnegie Hall and Paris’ Salle Cortot, to far-reaching places where music is needed most, like the jails of Riker’s Island.
A Las Vegas native, she quickly garnered sixteen first-prize awards, performed live on Nevada Public Radio, and appeared as a soloist with every Las Vegas regional orchestra—all before graduating high school from the Las Vegas Academy. From there she polished off degrees from the Eastman School of Music and SUNY Stony Brook, where she received her Doctorate of Musical Arts in piano performance. As a laureate of the prestigious Pro Musicis International Award, she debuted in Carnegie Hall in 2012.
Dr. Le is a highly sought-after collaborator and chamber musician, performing with principal players of the world’s leading orchestras and ensembles such as Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Orpheus, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, American Brass, and Canadian Brass. She is a first-prize winner of the Ackerman Chamber Music Competition, juried by the Emerson String Quartet. From 2012-2014, she held a coveted fellowship position with Ensemble Connect, the resident ensemble of Carnegie Hall and the Juilliard School.
After establishing a career in New York, she returned to her roots in Las Vegas to make a difference. Through performances, teaching, and community outreach, she is committed to adding beauty and cultural growth to her hometown everyday. Read more at www.alexandriale.com.
