With dual focuses in music theory and organ, Alexander Meszler is committed to interdisciplinary performance and research.

In 2018, he received a Fulbright grant allowing him to move to Versailles, France where he studied with Jean-Baptiste Robin and completed research on secularism and the organ. Alexander has performed or presented at conferences of the European Association for the Study of Religions, The Society for the Scientific Study of Religion, the American Guild of Organists, the Historical Keyboard Society of North America, and the Westfield Center for Historical Keyboard Studies. In 2020, his research on Andrea Antico’s Frottole of 1517 was awarded The Diapason’s inaugural Gruenstein Award.

Meszler is dedicated to the promotion and performance of new works and serves as a member of the American Guild of Organists’ Committee on New Music. He also serves on the Board of Epsilon Spires in Brattleboro, Vermont, a center for illuminating relationships between creative arts, natural sciences, and sustainability.

Meszler received a D.M.A. in organ in 2020 from Arizona State University, a M.M. in music theory and organ from the University of Kansas, and a B.M. in music from Syracuse University.
