"I am convinced that music and art elevate the human spirit and are a source of eternal inspiration."
Currently, Alejandra is the Chief Conductor of the Santiago Municipal Chamber Orchestra - National Opera of Chile. During the past 5 years, she was 2.5 years the Chief Conductor of the Chile Chamber Orchestra and concurrently with that, the Chief Conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Santa Fe, Argentina for 3 years.
Since 2017 Alejandra began to work like assistant conductor alongside maestro Ivan Fischer, principal conductor of the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
With the ability to move from a powerful and intense Mahler to the refinement and subtlety of Mozart in less than a heartbeat, Ale is one of those conductors that understands the power of silence within the music as well as in life. She combines a constant and deep calm with her great love for music, blending exquisiteness with natural simplicity. Ale continues to explore new horizons finding unexpected results within established as well as new pieces.
