Biography

A composer, conductor, and singer, Alex is currently studying for this DMA degree in composition. His favorite music tends to be 400-500 years old, although he believes there are a few good pieces that have been composed since then. Born in Vermont and a Northerner at heart, Alex may typically be found within air-conditioned buildings during the warmer months. When he isn't composing, conducting, or singing, he enjoys going for a refreshing pint with friends. If too many pints are enjoyed, the singing of barbershop tags may ensue.
