President
Alicia has been in the band since 2009 and on the endowment board since 2016.  She plays tenor sax and is a member of the broom closet.  “I found my home when I found the band — the band is my village.  Serving on the Endowment is my way to give back to band through other skills and talents that aren’t necessarily music-related.”
