Currently living and working in his adopted hometown of Asheville, NC, violinist Alex Travers spends most of his time writing and recording in the studio, teaching at the Asheville Music Academy, or busking downtown. After receiving an undergraduate degree in violin performance from Appalachian State University, he spent several years performing as an orchestra and baroque musician before breaking outside the classical realm. Since 2015 he’s been heavily involved with a multitude of local and national projects as a collaborative artist and performer. His love of Bach, composition and improvisation is apparent in his use of guitar pedals and loop-stations, which he utilizes with the violin for live performances. More about his unique style can be found on his artist website.
This evening Travers plays 19th- and 20th-century music inspired by Across the Atlantic.
Presented in conjunction with Across the Atlantic: American Impressionism Through the French Lens. Generous funding for exhibition programming provided by Art Bridges.
