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.

In 2014-15 Alexi made his Carnegie Hall recital debut at Weill Hall and gave recitals on the Dame Myra Hess series in Chicago, Newtown Friends of Music (CT), Highfield Hall (MA), the Trust Performing Arts Center (PA), and at Brooklyn’s Barbes Bar. Concerto performances this season included those with the Santa Fe Symphony, the Hofheim Academy Orchestra in Bad Soden, Germany, and the Roswell Symphony in New Mexico. In summer 2015 Alexi will perform at the Marlboro and Caramoor Music Festivals.

Alexi has given recitals at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Napa’s Festival del Sole, and the Mondavi Center and has been featured on NPR’s “From the Top.” Recent chamber music performances include those at Carnegie Hall, as part of a week-long residency studying with the Takács Quartet;the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Jordan Hall in Boston; and a tour with Musicians from Ravinia's Steans Music Institute and Miriam Fried.

Alexi has collaborated with Pamela Frank, Miriam Fried, Gary Graffman, Wu Han, Frans Helmerson, Steven Isserlis, Kim Kashkashian, Gidon Kremer, and Christian Tetzlaff, and members of the Borromeo, Cleveland, Guarneri, and Takács Quartets at festivals including Caramoor’s “Rising Stars,” Music@Menlo and its Winter Residency, and Yellow Barn. While at the Ravinia Festival’s Steans Institute, he was the youngest participant and a recipient of the Gene Witz memorial fellowship.

He is the recipient of top prizes at the Yehudi Menuhin International Competition (2012), the Mondavi Center Competition (2010), and the 2013 Kronberg Academy master classes. He was praised by Strings magazine for his “beautiful, aching tone” for his performance of the Sibelius Concerto with the China Philharmonic Orchestra in Beijing during the Menuhin Competition.

Born in Palo Alto, California, Alexi attends the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he will begin in its Artist Diploma program in fall 2015 studying with Donald Weilerstein and Miriam Fried. Previous teachers include Wei He, Jenny Rudin, and Natasha Fong.
