Alexander Hawker is from Springville, Utah and recently moved to Seattle to study Violin Performance with a scholarship at Cornish College of the Arts. Until his move to Seattle, Alex had a small studio of violin students who he enjoyed teaching and doing concerts with. He also volunteers in community orchestras, and is an avid chamber instrumentalist. Recently, he was a prize winner in the Utah Baroque Ensemble's annual Scholarship Competition. Other notable performances include a performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Springville Chamber Orchestra, and a performance for the Lyceum Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2013-2014 season. The solo with the Lyceum Philharmonic was so well received that by popular demand the orchestra included a recording of it on their most recent album titled Children of Liberty. Alexander is currently the associate concertmaster of the Utah Valley Millennial Orchestra. He has also held principal positions on both violin and viola in the Springville Chamber Orchestra, Lyceum Philharmonic and Festival Orchestras, and pit orchestras for musicals such as Hello Dolly and the Mikado. He was also a member of the UMEA All-State Orchestra for three years, beginning in 2013. He began the violin at the age of ﬁve with Terri Fulwider and viola with Nicole Macias. He later went on to study both violin and viola with Monte Belknap. In his free time, Alexander enjoys doing things like playing chess, going to concerts, reading, hiking, ﬁshing, running, riding his bike, gardening, and performing chamber music with his friends.
