Alexi Kenney, the recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, has been named “a talent to watch” by The New York Times, which also noted his “architect’s eye for structure and space and a tone that ranges from the achingly fragile to full-bodied robustness.” His win at the 2013 Concert Artists Guild Competition at the age of nineteen led to a critically acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut recital at Weill Hall. Mr. Kenney has debuted with the Omaha Symphony, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, Asheville Symphony, Bay Atlantic Symphony, Wheeling Symphony, and the Indianapolis Symphony. He has performed at Wigmore Hall (London) and with the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. As a soloist, he has appeared with the Detroit, Columbus, and California symphonies among many others, as well as the Las Vegas Philharmonic, the Staatstheater Orchestra of Cottbus (Germany), and A Far Cry (Boston). He has appeared in recital on Carnegie Hall’s ‘Distinctive Debuts’ series and at Caramoor, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Jordan Hall in Boston, the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University, and Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival. Born in Palo Alto, California, Alexi holds a Bachelor of Music and Artist Diploma from the New England Conservatory in Boston.
