Alex's story is one of contribution. He has taken his time, energy and talent and used them to share his music with us all. He took his diploma from Blaine High School in 2005, after contributing to the school’s wind ensemble for four years.
After graduating from Whitman College with a degree in cello performance, he obtained a masters in music from Central
Washington University (CWU), where he performed as principle cellist in the CWU Orchestra and chamber orchestra. He has played with the Walla Walla Symphony, Mid-Columbia Symphony and Newport Symphony.
Alex’s present activities show his true range as a musician. He gives private cello lessons at the John G. Shedd Institute of the Arts and at the same time is a member of the post-rock band This Patch of Sky, which will release an album on iTunes and on vinyl sometime in August.
