Alex Hawker
August 16, 2015

The 2015/2016 season of the Sunday Concert Series sponsored by the Springville Arts Commission kicks off with a great concert by Alex Hawker on Sunday, August 16th. The Sunday Concert Series is held at the Springville Museum of Art on the third Sunday of each month, August through May at 4:30 pm.
Violinist and violist Alexander Hawker recently graduated from Springville High School and will be moving to Seattle in the fall of 2015 with a scholarship to attend Cornish College of the Arts, where he will study music.
Recently, he was a prize winner in the Utah Baroque Ensemble's annual Scholarship Competition. In 2014 he was a featured soloist in a concert for the LDS General Young Men Presidency in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square. Other notable performances include a performance in 2015 of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Springville Chamber Orchestra, and a solo performance during 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 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.
Next month, on September 20th, the series will feature Louise Payne, a soprano, also from Springville. Other performers for this series include the Old Time Fiddlers, The Red Desert Ramblers, Utah Valley Hand Bell Choir, Clive Romney, The Five Strings Kelli Brown and Sheldon Boone.
