The Hoag Music Series Presents: Alyssa Rodriguez

September 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

The Hoag Music Series is held at the Hoag Library in Albion, New York from March to December. This free-to-attend concert series is aimed at bringing unique music experiences to Orleans County, from artists who do not frequently perform here.

Raised next to a farm in the woods of Connecticut, USA, Alyssa Rodriguez has always admired nature and its natural beauty and sounds. She earned her bachelor’s degree of music in music composition from Ithaca College in central New York, where she began immersing herself in fiddle music and playing for dances. She is a certified Suzuki Violin instructor in Pre-Twinkle through Book 4 and studied with Carrie Reuning-Hummel of Ithaca Talent Education.

Alyssa is one of the finest players of the nyckelharpa, the keyed fiddle, on the East Coast and has studied nyckelharpa at Sibelius Academy and with many riksspellmän (master Swedish folk musicians) in Sweden. She has studied at the Eric Sahlström Institute, the all nyckelharpa workshop intensive at Ekebyholm Castle in Sweden and regularly sells out shows. She has appeared in Nordstjernan magazine and Nyckelharpan in Sweden, and released an all nyckelharpa album of traditional and newly composed music in 2022.

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council of the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by GO ART!
