Artist Bio


In the clever intermingling of whole-tone scales

and melodic chromaticism in Debussy's L'isle Joyeuse,

a younger Alex Goodhart discovered his purpose

was to be an artist, an expressive creator

To this day, his music seeks to juxtapose disparate

and complimentary musical vernacular, and to

communicate as directly as possible with an audience.

I grew up just outside of Philadelphia, where music and acting occupied much of my childhood and helped foster an interest in the lives of those with unique perspectives and challenges.


I draw inspiration from great artists across the spectrum to craft works that give voice to the various dreams, joys, and pains of the human experience. Some of these pieces invoke generational voices, like Edgar Allan Poe’s in my Raven Cantata, or James Joyce’s in yes (mountain flower). Others are uniquely mine and more rooted in the contemporary world, such as DIVIDED: an American Symphony. My voice has, so far, found itself most clearly in the realms of symphonic, choral, and vocal literature. 
My formal studies took place at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the European-American Music Alliance, the Oregon Bach Composer’s Symposium, and the Atlantic Music Festival.

As a musician and educator, I am committed to using my music to enrich and empower communities. My goal is to create works that not only stand out musically but also foster critical thinking, collaboration, and provide a valuable and lasting experience. Just as music has had such deep impact on myself, so too do I want to that feeling shared. I care strongly about the future of classical and contemporary music, as well as the evolution of programming and role of legacy institutions. I am eager to contribute to initiatives that challenge insular and repetitive practices, steering the field towards a more inclusive and innovative direction.
