A native of the Hudson Valley, NYC based vocalist Alexandra Schleuderer performs actively throughout the area. While holding positions at various Houses of Worship throughout the Northeast, Alexandra has discovered a great fulfillment in this work. It has been described that “when she sings it is impossible to not feel your heart expanding”. This year she has been appointed as the Visiting Cantorial Soloist at Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley, leading worship and fostering their music program.
Alexandra has found a true excitement and connection in the performance of the voices of our time. Within this realm she is an active member and soprano soloist of C4, a collective whose purpose is to shine a light on choral music written within the last 25 years. Other new works performed this season include David Lang's The Mile Long Opera and Francis Pollock's Stinney: An American Execution.
Alexandra made her professional debut with the Schenectady Symphony Orchestra for their 2012 performance of Mahler's 4th Symphony. Roles performed include Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus), Amy March (Little Women), Adina (L'elisir d'amore), Baby Doe (The Ballad of Baby Doe), and Persephone (La Descente d’Orphée aux enfers), among others.
Alexandra holds a Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Arts in Music, cum laude, from the State University of New York at Oneonta. Other education includes the Bel Canto Institute, in Florence, Italy and Crittenden Opera Studio in Boston, MA.
