While the museum is not yet open for public programs, we are pleased to offer a “virtual concert,” filmed inside the galleries, presented in partnership with Laguna Beach Live!
On Thursday, April 8, we welcome cellist Alex Grenbaum for a solo performance.
As cellist of the Hausmann Quartet, Alex Greenbaum is an Artist-in-Residence at San Diego State University, where he teaches cello and chamber music. One of the principal cellists of The Knights, Alex has performed and recorded throughout the U.S. and Europe, appearing at the festivals of Caramoor, Dresden, Ojai, Ravinia, and Tanglewood, as well as in the Canary Islands and Carnegie Hall with Osvaldo Golijov’s Pasión.
An avid chamber musician and passionate advocate for new music, Alex has been a member of the Tarab Cello Ensemble and Hutchins East, performed often with the FLUX Quartet, appeared with Newband, and at Music at the Anthology (MATA). He has performed as soloist with the Lehman Concert Artists, National Repertory Orchestra, and Brandywine Chamber Orchestra. His varied interests have led to collaborations with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Shen Wei Dance Arts, Malashock Dance, and the Mark Morris Dance Group. In San Diego he is a mainstay on the Art of Élan chamber series, an affiliated artist with San Diego New Music, a member of the San Diego Baroque Soloists, and Ensemble-in-Residence at Mainly Mozart with the Hausmann Quartet.
Also an active performer in Mexico, Alex was a member of the Orquesta Sinfonica Sinaloa de las Artes. A highlight of last season was a residency in Tijuana which included visits to a dozen schools, and he has performed and taught as part of the Northern Lights Music Festival in Ajijic, Jalisco, since 2009.
Alex attended the Eastman School of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music, the University of Miami, Queens College, and Juilliard Pre-College. He has studied baroque cello and early music at institutes and privately in the US, Canada, and Amsterdam. Alex plays a cello crafted in 2006 by Michele Ashley and a baroque cello labeled Claude Vuillaume, 1788.
