Want to hear my music in concert?
Here's a listing of some performances
for which I have information.
Click on the title
to learn more about the piece.



If you know about additional performances,
drop me an email
and I'll post the info and links here!

 

___________________________

A composer's work is purely abstract without musicians bringing it to life. I'm grateful to the many musicians around the world who have put their time, energy and heart into bringing my notes into the air, and to the ears of audiences!

Alex Shapiro is very, very fortunate that her pieces are performed on several hundred concerts each year. Listed below are selected ones in professional or university venues for which she has information.



Due solely to the high number of middle school and high school concerts on which her music appears (and not to any lack of gratitude!), those performances are NOT included here.

 
 

If you have programmed a Shapiro work or have an upcoming concert date, please email the information— as well as a program, if possible— to Alex by clicking HERE. You'll be added to this page, and a smile will be added to Alex's face! Thanks!

 

Email Alex!
