“The "Dennis Alexander Piano Competition" is a unique event for young pianists. At the end of the competition, Dennis warmly congratulates every participating student and gives them a new  piece of his music. In an era where concert halls are often filled with an aging audience, this competition is especially important, as it introduces young musicians and their families to a "Living Composer" with a warm heart, who happens to write wonderful music for young people. These young musicians are the classical music audience of the future, and the "Dennis Alexander Piano Competition" inspires them to aspire to their highest potential. We are so very fortunate to have Dennis in our state, and appreciate all he does for the musicians of New Mexico.”
