Alejandro Pinzón

Orchestra Director - Bandoneonist

Conductor, bandoneon player and tango specialist, Alejandro Pinzón is an artist who seeks to inspire others through artistic experiences and innovative programs. His varied repertoire of cultural activities and artistic projects have taken him around the world, since his musical beginnings in his native Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.

In 2008 he obtained a master's degree in orchestral conducting at the University of Texas at El Paso, in the United States (the first Yucatecan with that degree). There he studied for two years with Dr. Lowell Graham, former director and commander of the US Air Force Symphonic Band. He also completed doctoral studies in conducting at West Virginia University, with Dr. Mitchell Arnold as his primary teacher.

In 2005, Maestro Pinzón studied with the conductor Christoph Hagel, at his invitation, in Berlin, Germany. His first lessons in conducting were from Dr. Leroy Osmon, a Pulitzer Prize- and Grammy-nominated composer.

He has conducted orchestras and symphonic bands, chamber orchestras, choirs, and opera productions in Mexico, the United States, and Argentina. Among them are: Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra, Morgantown Community Orchestra, Washington Symphony Orchestra, UTEP Music Theater Company, WVU Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Cattaruzzi of Argentina, Xalapa Chamber Orchestra, Mérida City Orchestra, Yucatán Opera Company, Choir Latin American Pittsburgh, OvreArts Symphony, among others. As co-founder and co-director of “Camerata 33”, he helps promote Latin American chamber music in the United States of America.

Starting in 2007, he began a deep study of Argentine tango, both music and dance. In 2015, after being a violinist for 20 years, he became the first Yucatecan player of the bandoneon. Maestro Pinzón is a bandoneonist with ample artistic curiosity. The bandoneon is the emblematic and complex instrument of tango.

Also in 2015, he develops his “Maestro Tango” concept, with which he travels internationally to give music and dance master classes, direct concerts, play with different orchestras and give lectures on the history of tango. "Maestro Tango" has been presented in more than a dozen states of the American Union, as well as in Mexico, Spain, Greece and Germany.

His recent performances include solo appearances with: Pittsburgh Symphony Soloists, Cirrus Collective (for Chamber Music Pittsburgh), Bravo Quartet, and WVU Symphony Orchestra. In March 2022 she will make her debut with the Pittsburgh Chamber Orchestra and have her first performance at Carnegie Hall in Carnegie, Pennsylvania.
