Meet Aleksandar

Aleksandar will perform on Show 376 in Boston on October 6, 2019.

Aleksandar Vitanov (trumpet), 18, originally from Kavadarci, Macedonia, currently lives in Michigan where he is a trumpet student at Interlochen Arts Academy and studies with Ken Larson. He began his trumpet studies at the age of nine and shortly after started participating in competitions nationally and internationally.

In 2017, Aleksandar made his debut as a soloist with the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra. The following year, he traveled to the United States where he attended the Interlochen Arts Camp over the summer and began his studies at the Interlochen Arts Academy year-round. Since then, Aleksandar has continued to appear as a soloist and further his musicianship by regularly participating in various concerts, brass quintets, contemporary music ensembles, and the pit for musicals and ballets at the Interlochen Arts Academy.

Receiving the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award will allow Aleksandar to continue his studies at Interlochen and purchase two trumpets.
