Biography

Alexandria Le enjoys a multi-faceted and unique musical career which has brought her from Carnegie Hall to Riker’s Island as a concertizing pianist to the creation of a wine and music festival. She has been touted as a community “musical leader” (Las Vegas Review-Journal) and as “a warm, animated, outgoing, confident, hypertalented pianist whose greatest asset is her ability to communicate” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). 

Highly driven and passionate about cultivating the arts in unique and interesting ways, she is Founding Artistic Director of the Las Vegas Music & Wine Festival (which pairs wine to classical music in untraditional spaces) and is the Founding Executive and Artistic Director for Notes with a Purpose (which provides creative music programming throughout Las Vegas). A native of Las Vegas, she garnered sixteen first-prize awards, performed live broadcast performances over KNPR-Las Vegas, and performed with all of Las Vegas' regional orchestras — all before graduating high school.

After winning the prestigious Pro Musicis International Award in 2011 and joining a distinguished roster of artists, she debuted as soloist in Carnegie Hall to glowing reviews. Soon afterward, Ms. Le joined as a pianist in Carnegie Hall's resident ensemble, the highly-prolific Ensemble Connect (a 20-member ensemble in partnership with the Juilliard School, the Weill Institute, and the New York Department of Education, formerly known as Ensemble ACJW).  

As a Teaching Artist, her music outreach was sponsored by established institutions such as Carnegie Hall, D.A.R.E., and the Pro Musicis Foundation. She has designed and executed programs, curriculum, and concerts for incarcerated populations, the mentally and physically disabled, healthcare patients, schoolchildren of all ages, and people across the socio-economic spectrum. In under a span of two years, 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 as part of Ensemble ACJW. Notes with a Purpose continuously garners recognition nationwide: They are the 2017 recipient of the Father Eugène Merlet Community Service Award.

After receiving a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music, Ms. Le went on to pursue a Master of Music and Doctorate of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University.

In March 2015, Ms. Le became a Yamaha Artist on their classical piano roster of which there are fewer than 80 active internationally. 

 

...a performance in triumphal style. Ms. Le is a passionate and involved player; she invests herself entirely in her performance.

Wine never tasted (or sounded) so good until Alexandria Le, a Las Vegas native and classical concert pianist, was sipping a glass of chardonnay during a performance of Dvorák. This was her inspiration for creating the ultimate sensorial pairing between classical music and wine.

Eight years later, the Carnegie Hall performer has left her vibrant New York City career to return to Las Vegas...

Alexandria is the Founding Executive Artistic Director of Notes with a Purpose, whose mission is to produce engaging, high-quality musical experiences through concerts, educational programs, and outreach projects to cultivate life-long appreciation of the arts. Their programs include The Music JuiceBox Series, Wednesdays Live at the Mission, Lullaby Project (future programming), and the Las Vegas Music & Wine Festival.

 

She is also the Founding Artistic Director of the Las Vegas Wine and Music Festival, a unique multi-sensory experience that brings high-quality classical music performances to audiences while they enjoy wine specifically paired to the music. Further, the Festival brings concerts outside traditional concert halls into unique, intimate spaces, allowing classical music to be approachable, accessible, and fun. The Festival raises awareness and profit for Notes with a Purpose.

The inaugural season was June of 2015 at the Nevada State Museum on the grounds of the Springs Preserve and involved 22 acclaimed artists, including Juilliard professors, principal orchestral players of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the New York City Ballet, a nine-time Grammy-award winner, Carnegie Hall musicians, and those who have won the most distinguished prizes in their field.
