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).
She is driven to cultivate the arts in unique and interesting ways by engaging all audiences: She is the Founding Artistic Director of the Las Vegas Wine and Music 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).
A winner of the 2012 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. She has also held collaborative piano positions at the Banff Centre of the Arts in Canada.
Ms. Le is equally engaged as an educator and advocate of arts in our society through community outreach. Over 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. She has also been sponsored through Pro Musicis and D.A.R.E. All three organizations have largely influenced her creation of Notes with a Purpose.
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. She credits her piano teachers Christina Dahl, Douglas Humpherys, Roger Bushell, Erna Gulabyan, and her mother, Michelle Le.
In March 2015, Ms. Le became a Yamaha Artist on their classical piano roster of which there are fewer than 80 active internationally.

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...
