Alexander Straus-Fausto

Alexander Richard Straus-Fausto is pursuing his Master of Music Degree in organ performance at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, in the studio of Dr. Martin Jean. At Yale, Alex is Co-Organist and Choir Director at the Berkeley Divinity School. He completed his Bachelor of Music at McGill University Schulich School of Music and his secondary school studies at Michigan’s Interlochen Arts Academy. While still a teenager, Alex undertook a Canada Council-funded summer 2019 concert tour of the UK, playing in historic churches and cathedrals. In fall 2019, he was appointed Titular Organist at Église du Très-Saint-Nom-de-Jésus in Montréal, whose four-manual, 120-rank Casavant organ is acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest. Alex has further expanded the organ’s reach by creating more than 50 original transcriptions of major orchestral works, reflecting his passion for the symphonic organ as a virtually unlimited medium for artistic expression.
