Alexander Bauhart

Music Director | Click to Email

Alexander was born in Montréal, Québec. His teachers include Geneviève Soly, Mireille Lagacé and the world renowned organist Bernard Lagacé. Dr. Bauhart received a scholarship from New England Conservatory where he earned his Masters, and a merit scholarship from the School of Music at Yale University, where he was the pupil of Richard Rephann in the Doctor of Musical Arts program. As well as performing regularly as a soloist on harpsichord and organ in the United States, Canada and Europe, he was the Director of Music at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Bristol, RI in the early 2000s, so this is a bit of reunion for Alexander and St. Michael’s!

His many awards include the Woods Chandler Memorial Award for an Outstanding Organist (Connecticut, 1998), the FCAR Scholarship for Excellence in Research (Government of Québec, 1997-1999), and the Medal of Achievement in the Popular Arts, presented to him by the Minister of Culture of Poland in 1981. His Yale doctoral thesis was on the Twelve Polonaises of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, the translation of a tuning treatise by Canadian author Pierre-Yves Asselin, and the publication of the complete works of Johannes Trier, a pupil of J. S. Bach.
