Alec Doyle

Rapid City, South Dakota

University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Bachelor of Music/Cello Performance, 2024

Alec grew up in the Black Hills region of South Dakota and enjoys hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, jumping into cold lakes, and wearing shorts and sandals year-round (if at all possible). He can also unicycle. He currently studies cello performance with Karen Becker and hopes to play in a professional symphony somewhere (anywhere, really). Alec has also recently branched out into jazz cello playing.
