Music that ministers! America’s New Gospel Pianist, Alex-Zsolt, has a sincere passion to present the gospel through music that is inspirational. With his God-given talent, Alex presents music that ministers to people of all ages.
In the past thirteen years, Alex has visited nearly 1,000 churches. Here are just some of the ways the spirit of God is moving His people through Alex’s music ministry:
“Thank you for your arrangements. You have wonderful gifts and I am grateful for the way God is allowing you to use them! I am confident they will be an inspiration to many in various worship settings across the country.”
- Lloyd Larson, Lillenas Music
“I don’t know where to start in thanking you for the wonderful day of music we enjoyed here in La Jolla last Sunday. Not only was the music so well performed, but your spirit of love and humility definitely touched our hearts.”
- Barbara, Music Minister, La Jolla Christian Fellowship Church, La Jolla, CA
“Our friend talked with Alex on the phone while making our ticket reservations telling him she wasn’t sure I’d be able to make it because I was being operated on with a brain tumor at that moment in time. By faith, she purchased the tickets. It touched my heart to learn that Alex stopped and prayed for me right then & there over the phone. Last evening, I was able to walk (hobble) over to him, introduce myself, and thank him for the prayers and the delightful festive concert. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!”
- Teresa, concert attendee, Grand Rapids, MI
With a focus and desire to honor the Lord, Alex shares hymns, praise and worship songs, as well as his own compositions and arrangements with a deep and passionate energy that he says is given to him by the Lord. “God gave me a special energy at the piano so that the music can move people in a way that allows the passionate message of Jesus Christ to be conveyed through music.” Alex doesn’t just “play” the piano, he ministers through the piano, connects with people, and has been encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring since the start of the ministry.
In 2009, as the economy took a hard turn in the wrong direction, with it brought a heavy blanket of burden and personal difficulty for many people across the nation, believer and non-believer alike. By ministering to audiences through concert, Alex has been able able to encourage and uplift spirits through God’s word and music. This has resulted in numerous souls being welcomed into God’s Kingdom by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. A ministry event with Alex is not about having a pianist come to play but to have everyone involved, actively worshiping, and learning more about the magnificent love of God.
To date, Zsolt has released ten CD projects, many of which are collaborations with composer and arranger, David T. Clydesdale. Late 2009 marked the debut of Alex’s first nationally published book of piano arrangements titled, “Draw Me Nearer – Inspirational Hymn Settings for Solo Piano.” The book, as well as the accompanying CD project itself are available through Lillenas Music (www.lillenas.com). The release of his first collaborative solo piano book titled, “Gospel Gold” was released in June 2010 through Hal Leonard publishing company (www.halleonard.com).
Alex has also been a guest on christian television networks such as TCT, CTN, Skyangel, and DirecTV. These stations broadcast through direct-to-home satellites via global satellite systems to more than 100 million homes around the world such as the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Iraq, Iran, Australia, and many more.
Alex-Zsolt holds two cum laude degrees in Music Education and Music Composition from Central Michigan University. Pursuing both degrees has enabled him to aid church choirs, orchestras, and praise teams by means of seminars and workshops as well as offer quality music for different ensembles in ministry. Alex has arranged music for churches on a personal basis and is currently arranging numerous orchestra, choir, praise ensemble, and piano arrangements to fill these needs in today’s church. Some of Alex’s works are published and available for ministry use.

Motivated by their faith in Jesus Christ, they serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.

In 2011, Alex will be traveling the country ministering with his new concert titled, “Your Grace STILL Amazes Me!” 2011 brings many new and exciting opportunities such as international travels, a second Caribbean cruise in May, as well as collaborative ministry events with Dove & Grammy Award winning gospel artists, Sandi Patty and Pat Boone, comedian Chonda Pierce, and one of Bill Gaither’s favorite southern gospel groups, The Booth Brothers. On January 15th, Alex had the opportunity to share in a special concert for the Walt Disney Company titled, “Disney Pipes and Pops.” This event was with Disney musician, Rob Richards, and was held at Disney’s historic El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd.
Zsolt explains, “My faith leads me during difficult times and times of great success. My faith walk is just as important to me as my musical ability.” He also believes that it is important to take his music ministry into places where the gospel has never been heard, is thankful for each ministry opportunity God has called him to, and for the many people who keep his ministry in prayer. He also knows that Alex-Zsolt Ministries is really God’s ministry and that he is just an ordinary man God uses in extraordinary ways to get His word to every corner of the world.
