Alex Legeros (2011)

Posted on November 8th, 2015 by

Alex Legeros is building a career in arts and nonprofit leadership in the Twin Cities with the intent of taking the reins for the next chapter in the great legacy of our nation’s most vibrant arts community. In spring of 2016, Alex will graduate with a Masters degree (MPS) in Arts and Cultural Leadership (ACL) from the University of Minnesota. His capstone project includes an academic paper on the impact of diversity on artistic quality, accompanied by a practical consulting project with St. Paul’s Zeitgeist Center for New Music and their Eric Stokes Song Contest. His capstone also includes placement as a Board Director of MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis, the foremost independent music education institution in the Midwest.  Previously in the ACL program, Alex has worked with Children’s Theatre Company, Minnesota Youth Symphonies, and The Musical Offering.

In addition to his graduate studies, Alex Legeros holds many jobs and responsibilities within the Twin Cities. He is Executive Director of The Musical Offering, Twin Cities’ premier chamber music ensemble. Sergeant Legeros, as he’s called some weekends, performs as a bassoonist with the 451st U.S. Army Band stationed at Ft. Snelling, Minnesota, where he also leads marketing, recruiting, and is the unit’s substance abuse prevention leader. Currently, Alex sits on the boards of the Mill City Summer Opera (Artistic Chair), Danebod Folk Camps (Vice President), and MacPhail Center for Music. He and his partner Tom Putzier founded their own art-making company ANTICLUB, LLC in 2015. Alex also assists his Father Nicholas Legeros (’77) as a bronze sculptor, creating many prominent sculptures together throughout Minnesota.

Recreationally, Alex performs with the 1st John Philip Sousa Memorial Band in Edina, along with the Minneapolis Civic Orchestras and others. Alex’s love of bread baking started at Gustavus with his adviser Dr. Lisa Heldke, and he now spreads the gospel to all his friends and family who wish to learn. And whether he likes it or not, he also gets to spend some quality time with his two 1980s-vintage Mercedes diesels.
