His travels have taken him to all corners of the world -- performing as recital soloist in The Cologne Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt Museum of Contemporary Art and The Adelaide Towne Hall; conducting workshops, master classes, as well as an Artist-in-Residence at the Finders Street Conservatorium in Adelaide, Australia.   And while traveling he has received accolades for his teaching by numerous world-class cellists such as Yo-Yo Ma.

Alexander Ezerman, is an Associate Professor of Cello at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.   In the summer he is on the faculty of the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Burlington Vermont.   

Alexander comes from a family where the cello runs four generations deep, including two former associate principals of the Philadelphia Orchestra.   An active advocate and performer of new music, he has been involved in numerous premiers, and has recorded on the New World, Centaur and Innova Labels.  A prize winner in national and international competition, Alexander has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician across North America, South America, and Europe.
