Meet Angie Lynd, Trumpet

Trumpeter Angie Lynd is the second-oldest in a family with eight children. She was born and raised just outside of Columbus, Ohio, where her family owns an ever-growing fruit farm. Perhaps it was partly from being surrounded by the best fruit around, but food, cooking and eating have always been her passion.

“Start a conversation with me about food and cooking and I just might talk your ear off,” laughs Angie.

She was homeschooled all her life, but had the privilege of being involved in a homeschool band, where she developed her love of music. In addition to concert band, she participated in a jazz band, orchestra, honors bands, and a steel drum band. In August, Angie moved to Boulder to attend Bauman College, a culinary school that applies a holistic and natural approach to culinary arts.

“With each day of class that goes by, I find myself loving my school and what I’m learning even more.”

How long have you been in the Boulder Concert Band?
I joined this past September when I first moved here to Boulder. Having this outlet to continue playing my trumpet has been a wonderful experience for me, as it was something I was adamant about not giving up.

Does your trumpet have a name?
I can’t say that it does. I have never been one to name inanimate objects. Not even my car.

What is the most recent concert you've attended?
Not too long ago my mom and I attended a local symphony concert where they performed Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a favorite piece of ours.

What is the most recent book you've read?
If you don’t count cookbooks, it would have to be William Thayer’s Onward to Fame and Fortune. It’s a heavy, thought-provoking book that is taking me longer to read than I care to admit.

What is your favorite meal?
Does chocolate count as a meal?? I love just about anything Italian - pasta with lots of veggies and a glass of red wine is perfection. Mmmm.

What is your favorite movie?
A German “foodie” film called Mostly Martha. I did not know if I would be able to get past the sub-titles, but found myself falling in love with the movie within the first five minutes.

What is your day job?
As a current student at Bauman, I do not have a day job. I do however, do some catering locally in Boulder. Before I moved to Boulder, I worked on my family’s fruit farm, as well working in a private home assisting the personal chef.
