Mr. Woods often performs at top festivals and on concert series in New York City and abroad: the Mostly Mozart Festival, Festival Pablo Casals, Lincoln Center Festival, Festival Wien Modern, Darmstadt Institute, Boston Early Music Festival Fringe Concert Series, 4x4 festival, and the Bang-On-A-Can Marathon Concert. His recordings may be heard on the Acis, Tzadik, Bridge, and Tantara record labels.

Alexander is a full-time member of the faculty at the Brigham Young University School of Music where he teaches violin, chamber music, and violin pedagogy.
