Adore Alexander


Alexander explored his compositional voice through his studies at Morehouse College. It is then that he started to see the potential to captivate audiences and artists through the dialogue of a concert. He sees his duty as a composer as two-fold: 1.) to moderate or inspire conversations about social issues which at times can be quite difficult to sustain and 2.) to be a storyteller that inspects the truth through many lenses and captures the diversity of experiences. His community work as an artist continues to focus on telling new stories that give a platform to marginalized voices. Alexander is constantly seeking groundbreaking ways to collaborate with composers and artists to enhance the classical music narrative that showcases (the same) works written by (the same) white men from centuries ago. Instead, Alexander believes that through performance, we can hold a mirror to the world and allow it to see itself, in all its shades and experiences.
