Description

Alexias Ferrer began formal lessons under Sandy Mayrant in 1998 and later with Risa Schneider from 2000-2008. At the age of 9, he had his first recital and at 14 he had his first solo piano concert. In 2008, Alexias studied chamber music at the Austin Chamber Music Center and studied with Washington Garcia and Dr. Jason Kwak. That same year, Alexias performed his lecture recital “An Evening of Sergei Rachmaninoff” featuring a rare performance of the entire original 1913 setting of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Sonata Op. 36. During the summer of 2015 Alexias made his first international debut in Plovdiv, Bulgaria by performing Balakirev’s infamous Islamey (Fantaisie orientale) Op. 18 for Balabanov’s House Music Days International Festival. In 2016, he graduated from Texas State University with the Bachelor of Music in piano performance degree.

He currently accompanies a church choir of which he is also the music director. He is also active performs as accompanist for weddings and funerals and other public events. Alexias is the head piano instructor at Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos, where he teaches young students to play and appreciate piano. He also gives private lessons and accompanies vocal students at Texas State University.

Alexias Ferrer has been accepted at Louisiana State University School of Music and will focus on obtaining a Master’s degree in Piano performance. He is intent on continuing his music aspirations pursing a doctorate degree.

When not at the piano Alexias enjoys long-distance running, reading, playing with his miniature poodle “Peter”, and collecting perfumes by Clive Christian.
