Alice Sano was born in 1929 in Los Angeles, California. When the U.S. entered WWII, her family was forced to move to an internment camp along with other Japanese immigrants. Eventually her father secured a job teaching Japanese to army military intelligence students at the University of Michigan, and they moved to Ann Arbor. Sano majored in music theory and cello at the U-M School of Music, and dedicated her career to teaching music.
Alice Sane was interviewed by students from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor in 2018 as part of the Legacies Project.

A Peaceful Setting: It's nestled into one of the most peaceful, pleasant hillside settings in the city. It's by a quiet lake where, often in good weather, concerts or recitals are performed. This is the U-M School of Music building, designed by Aero Saarinen and completed in 1964. This North Campus site is a center for musical education, housing one of the oldest music colleges in the country, and the hub of a vast array of musical activities on campus.
