Young pianist packs a punch

Award-winning Alexandria Le to play Music on Sunday series concert Jan. 24 at TOSH

Renowned U.S. pianist Alexandria Le will perform selections from Chopin, Beethoven, Bach and other noted composers when the Music on Sunday series resumes Jan. 24 at The Old School House Arts Centre in Qualicum Beach.

Le has been acclaimed as a “passionate and involved player… who is so adept at painting tonal pictures” (New York Concert Review) and as “a warm, animated, hypertalented young pianist whose greatest asset is her ability to communicate” (Boston Musical Intelligencer).

She has performed from the world’s most prestigious venues, like Carnegie Hall, to the farthest-reaching places where music is needed most, like the jails of Riker’s Island.

Le is also the founding artistic director of the Las Vegas Wine and Music Festival and co-directs the Las Vegas Academy Piano Institute. 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, Le joined as a pianist in Carnegie Hall’s resident Ensemble ACIW, a 20-member ensemble in partnership with the Juilliard School, the Weill Institute, and the New York Department of Education. She has performed regularly in New York City venues like Carnegie Hall, Trinity Wall Street, (le) Poisson Rouge, Subculture NYC, and Spectrum.

Sunday’s concert begins at

2:30 p.m. at TOSH, 122 Fern Rd. West. Admission is $16; tickets are available at The Old School House. For more info, call 250-752-6133 or visit www.theoldschoolhouse.org.
