NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Alexandra Chea’s love for music was apparent early in her childhood.

But when she showed up at Queen College’s band room with a violin, she quickly had to trade it in for a clarinet. To this day, she and her instrument remain almost inseparable. 

Though she parted ways with her violin, her aspirations to become a classical instrumentalist remained, and she committed to doing just that after graduating high school. 

Fast forward a few years, and she is on her way to completing the highest degree possible – all while performing and working at Arizona State’s creative career industry relations office.

Though she is excited about her accomplishments, she says the road wasn’t easy and speaks of the obstacles she faced along her journey.

Alexandra says she wants to make this path easier to follow for aspiring musicians and looks forward to performing and also being an educational leader in The Bahamas.

The island’s orchestral groups include The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra and the Bahamas National Symphony Orchestra. However, most musicians involved have nonmusical jobs and perform as hobbyists. 

Alexandra says she is excited about what the future holds for classical music in the country.
