Alex DePue

Edited: November 24, 2021, 6:10 AM · I love Alex DePue - he comes from a deep classical and fiddler background and family. As well as his classical background and awards, he has also won national fiddling championships along with playing at Carnegie Hall as Concertmaster for the National Guild Youth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Joseph Silverstein. Equally skilled at classical violin and fiddling, as well as being able to improvise on a dime, he often blends the two together on tour and at various appearances, along with everything else he does. His younger brother Zach was concertmaster for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for over a decade before resigning several years back. Zach was appointed concertmaster for the Carmel Symphony Orchestra a few months ago. This is just outside of Indianapolis.

I wanted to share these two links with those who would appreciate them - and thought of this group.

This first is of a lovely medley that includes Czardas from last month and it features both him and his brother:

This is from a solo appearance that happened just before the Great Lockdown of 2020 and features pretty much any genre outside of Gospel. It's worth the 15 minutes of your time :-)

Wishing everyone in the US a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels if you are heading out for the holiday!
