Violinist Alex Granger holds a performance degree from Biola University, where he was named the Conservatory’s Presser Scholar; and a masters degree from the University of Southern California, where he studied as a Sima Mannick Endowed Music Scholar. In addition to private studies with Bing Wang of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, he studies regularly under renowned violinist Midori Goto.
Alex calls himself a “constant collaborator,” with many varied projects. He recently performed Lucas Floyd’s Violin Concerto at the Hot Air Festival in San Francisco, a work written for and premiered by him. He is part of the South Florida Symphony and the Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra, an exciting conductorless ensemble based in Los Angeles. He also performs often at his church, local schools, and retirement homes, and regards performance outreach as an essential priority of his career. In the summer of 2015 he will travel to Burundi, Africa, to perform with a string quartet and provide music education for the community of Bujumbura, the capital city. As a teacher, Alex maintains students from the elementary to the collegiate level, and finds great joy in giving back what has been given to him through teaching.
