Alicia earned a BM in violin performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a MM from the University of Akron. She was a freelance musician for many years in the Cleveland area and has performed with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, Erie Philharmonic, and the Cleveland Chamber Symphony. She returned to her hometown of Tucson near the end of 1999 and has been a violinist with the Tucson Symphony since 2000. Along with True Concord, she performs regularly with many other professional groups in Tucson and is a member of the Aracelli String Quartet.
