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!

 

     
nuthatch
     

 

Alex Shapiro is very, very fortunate to have hundreds of performances of her works each year, and listed below are selected ones for which she has information.


Due solely to the high number (and not to any lack of gratitude!), the many middle school and high school 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!
