A native from Argentina, this Argentinean-American International Lyric Soprano challenges her unique voice through wide and diverse repertoire with a flexibility hard to find among classically trained singers. She has performed throughout the United States promoting Latin American composers such as Piazzolla, Ginastera, Villalobos, Guastavino, Lecuona and the best of Latin American folkloric repertoire as well as her native tango music. In 1990, she arrived in the United States where she continued her education, receiving scholarships from both the New World School of the Arts/ MDCC and later Florida International University. Alexandra Marie has appeared with Symphony Orchestras such as The Coral Spring Pops, the Hallandale Pops and sang with Zarzuela companies both in South America and South Florida such as “Grateli”, “Hispanic Lyric Theater” and “Classical Concerts” among others. Alexandra Marie released her second CD entitled “Esencia de Mujer”, featuring Latin women composers and historical female figures from the Americas, which was recorded in Argentina with the finest musicians from the Pampas. Her own version of “O Abre Alas” by Brazilian composer Chiquinha Gonzaga was published as an educational compilation of songs from famous historical composers, both in Europe and South America.
