The Triangle Pride Band is fortunate to have had Alex Alberti as our Artistic Director since 2020 and for the recent addition in 2022 of Bailey Rose as our Assistant Artistic Director.
While they collaborate on the overall artistic direction of both ensembles (with more to come?) Alex has primary responsibility as the Conductor of the Symphonic Band, while Bailey is primarily responsible for the Marching/Pep Band as well as serving as the Band Librarian.
Alberti earned his Master’s degree in Music Education with a post-baccalaureate certificate in Nonprofit Management from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2020. He is also an alumnus of Appalachian State University, where he holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a minor in Psychology. Alberti is an active researcher in the field of music, with interests ranging from theory pedagogy, a cappella, music psychology, and music education. Alberti has presented his findings with NAfME, the College Music Society, and the National Conference of Undergraduate Research.
Full-time, Alberti works in educational technology at LearnPlatform, a company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. In his spare time, Alberti composes both choral and instrumental works, judges for the International Competition for Collegiate A Cappella, and participates in the semi-professional a cappella group, Triadic Vocals.
