Alexa maintains a busy performance schedule, having presented recitals, concertos and master classes in England, Germany, Spain, Slovenia, Turkey, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Canada, Korea, China, Singapore, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, and throughout the United States. Recent notable performances include the Australian and American (at the National Flute Association’s annual convention) premieres of Australian composer Mathew Hindson’s “House Music”, Corigliano’s Pied Piper Fantasy with the Colorado Music Festival, Albany Symphony and the Brooklyn Philharmonic, and several world premiere performances including Valerie Coleman’s Elegy (based on poet Maya Angelou’s Elegy) for the keynote presentation of the National Flute Association Convention in Chicago. Right before the beginning of the pandemic, she premiered a concerto by Michael Fine with Ensemble Bravura. She did the premiere recording of Elliot Carter’s Flute concerto (2013) and her 2014 premiere recording of the Hindson is now available as a digital download. Alexa has two recordings “in the can” which are due for release this season. Of her most recent concerto disc: “Anyone who doubts Still's dumbfounding technical ability or complete tonal control should hear these… You just won't hear better-sustained flute playing on disc than this” Fanfare Magazine. Of music for flute and piano with New York-based English pianist Stephen Gosling: “Both performers are constantly praised for their technical prowess and amazing ability to make the most challenging works sound effortless and easy. Reviewers far and wide agree that Alexa Still doesn’t make anything sound tough. She gracefully sprints and hurdles through menacing challenges without seeming to break a sweat. Added to this technical superiority comes an equally superior sensitive musical side. This disc isn’t just flautistic fireworks.” Sequenza21. Her 15th solo disc, of Venezuelan Efrain Amaya’s music (mostly premieres) was released on the Oberlin label in 2017: “Still showcases her exquisite lyricism and virtuosity on every track” Cleveland Classical.
Alexa has served her profession as President of the National Flute Association (USA), and has contributed articles to flute journals across the globe. She plays a silver flute made for her by Brannen Brothers of Boston with gold or wooden headjoints by Sanford Drelinger of White Plains, New York.
