Alex Meixner’s performing career began at age 6 with his two sisters and father in an ethnic folk ensemble. From these early experiences through headline appearances at music festivals throughout the United States; concert performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, not to mention former Wheat Thins pitchwoman Sandy Duncan, and his own jazz and ethnic ensembles. With over fifty recordings to date, Meixner has developed a unique musical mix that appeals to a wide cross-section of audiences.
Meixner’s formative musical studies were on piano and piano accordion, but he quickly branched out on drums, diatonic button accordion, bass and trumpet, his college major. Alex is the rare touring accordionist with a master’s degree in music from Penn State.
This instrumental versatility is combined with a musical background that has included intense studies and performance of jazz, classical, pop, polkas and many ethnic folk music genres with some of the leading artists in the world.
Alex’s performances are a high energy event not to be missed.
