Lyndsy Alesce: Clarinet
How did you hear about/find us?
Rick Barnes (trombone) told my husband about the group.
What is your musical background/history?
I took piano for several years. Back in the day, my high school (Mortimer Jordan) was grades 7 -12, no middle school. So, I was in beginner band in the 7th grade and was in the marching/concert band 8th – 12th grade. I ended up at the University of Montevallo on a music scholarship. After 3 semesters, I transferred to UAB & played in their concert band.
What is your favorite “Band Song” to play?
I love Prince in Concert. Great drum ending.
What do you do when you are not playing music? (work/hobbies/for fun???)
I work in a Pathology lab at UAB. My hobbies are traveling & sleeping.
What type of animal/breed of dog/cat/bird/fish/other etc…. best reflects your personality and why?
I remind myself of a Jack Russell I used to have. He was hyper.
What is your superpower?
Tell us something fun! You know, like “That one time at band camp…” Or elsewhere. (funny anecdote/story/amazing coincidence/hidden talent/celebrity encounter, etc…)
This one time at band camp I got burned so band that I looked like a lobster.
I had a coworker convince me that I had been fired when my badge would not open any door. He was a jokester and I did not know that at the time.
I am a huge Marilyn Manson fan and I caught a water bottle that he threw into the crowd at a concert. I still have it. Gross, right?
