LGMF-1565Hailed by the Glens Falls Chronicle as “Impresario of the year” and described as “ambitious in the best way truly,” Alexander Lombard has been a driving force in the creation and cultivation of the Lake George Music Festival since its inception.  Lombard, who is a native of Queensbury, founded the festival in 2011 along with colleagues Barbora Kolářová and Roger Kalia.  His creative spirit and paramount success with the organization has earned him many distinctions including a position as one of the “Top 30 Professionals of 2014” according to Musical America.  Lombard’s vision and work for the festival has helped revitalize the landscape in the Village of Lake George, and the festival is frequently described as the region’s 21st century “cultural renaissance.”  His passion for creating innovative ways to reach new audiences has led to the festival’s highly regarded Art Attacks!  and Late Night Concert series in an effort to bring classical music to where the people are. Lombard’s success and experience has led him to become a frequent panelist for the New York State Council on the Arts. As an accomplished pianist, Lombard has performed across the United States and Europe and participated in a variety of summer music festivals.  He holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in piano performance with a concentration in music business from the Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam.
