Alexandra Samsonova

Alexandra Samsonova, began her musical training at the age of six. Starting with classical she was accepted at the age of sixteen at the renowned Gnesinyh Russian Academy of Music. Wishing to develop growing interest in jazz, she was later admitted to the Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, where she graduated Summa CumLaude in 2001, with a joint major in performance and composition.

Since then, Alexandra has performed with Kevin Mahogany, Greg Hopkins, Darren Barrett, Lionel Lueke and Jaleel Shaw to name a few. She has played at the Blue Note and the Carnegie Hall in New York, and was invited in 2000 to the IAJE conference in New Orleans as a guest performer.
