Alexis Alrich

Alexis travels frequently between Hong Kong and the San Francisco Bay Area, where she is the director of the John Adams Young Composers Program. Her music, which has been called "California Impressionism" is often inspired by natural landscapes and, conversely, modern urban sounds.

Her first orchestra piece was performed by the Women's Philharmonic and has since been played multiple times around the US. The American Composers Forum selected her for the Millenium Continental Harmony project, for which she composed a major piece for orchestra, chorus and soloists.

Recent pieces include Hong Kong Email for flute, clarinet, cello and piano, Marimba Concerto, Fragile Forests II: Cambodia for chamber orchestra, Route 101 for string quartet and Cary Tennis Songs with words by Cary Tennis, columnist for
