Experience the imaginative music making of New England Conservatory’s prestigious Artist Diploma students in the place that changed American history forever.

Violinist Alexi Kenney has been praised by the New York Times for “…immediately drawing listeners in with his beautifully phrased and delicate playing.” These qualities, paired with his distinctive poise, musical intellect, and thoughtful repertoire led to his win at the 2013 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition at the age of nineteen.

Highlights for Alexi’s 2015-16 season include solo recitals at Jordan Hall and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and concerto engagements with the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Santa Fe Symphony, Santa Maria Philharmonic and the NEC Philharmonia at Symphony Hall in Boston, in a performance of John Adams’ Violin Concerto. Alexi began the season with a busy summer in residence at the Marlboro Festival, along with featured solo recitals at the Caramoor Music Festival and ChamberFest Cleveland, where he was praised for his “powerful musical magnetism” ( Later this season, he will release his debut CD (CAG Records), featuring works by Schumann, Enescu and Westhoff– all works Alexi performed in his critically acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut recital.

Alexi has collaborated with Pamela Frank, Miriam Fried, Gary Graffman, Wu Han, Frans Helmerson, Steven Isserlis, Kim Kashkashian, Gidon Kremer, and Christian Tetzlaff at Marlboro, Ravinia, Caramoor, "Chamber Music Connects the World" at the Kronberg Academy, Schloss Elmau, ChamberFest Cleveland, and Music@Menlo.

Born in Palo Alto, California in 1994, Alexi is an Artist Diploma candidate at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he studies with Donald Weilerstein and Miriam Fried on the Charlotte F. Rabb Presidential Scholarship. Previous teachers include Wei He, Jenny Rudin, and Natasha Fong.
