History and Harmony are two facets of Alex Prizgintas. He has already collected numerous awards for his lectures and continues to reach new audiences with his music as well. “I often begin my lectures with a short selection on either the piano or cello. Instead of asking everyone to quite down and take their seats, I simply begin to play. Soon everyone sits down and I have their complete attention as I move on to the lecture,” says Alex who has given more than 25 lectures over the past four years. He has recently been awarded “Citizen of the Month” by Orange County for both his work in promoting and preserving history as well as playing each and every month at nursing homes for more than two years. “The senior rehabilitation centers offer a wonderful opportunity for me to develop a show that engages and entertains the listener.”
The great entertainer Liberace once corrected an interviewer who asked if he liked giving concerts. His answer; “I don’t give concerts, I give a show!” In all that Alex does, he hopes that he draws an audience into what he does as a showman while sharing music of all genres and teaching a little about local history as well. “While I appreciate the awards I have received for my work, it is the smiles on the faces of those who remember and look forward to hearing me play again that offer me the greatest satisfaction!"
