"Whenever we work together, I am reminded of exactly why I want to make music .... She is smart, determined, tenacious, hard working and totally dedicated."

I have worked with Cecelia for 15 years as a stand partner and in the section of Broadway shows and various orchestras. Whenever we work together, I am reminded of exactly why I want to make music. I have rarely encountered someone with as much integrity for our job -- to collaborate, maintain a high standard, make music together, and create the best product for the audience. She is smart, determined, tenacious, hard working and totally dedicated. She does her research and pays close attention to the challenges currently facing musicians. She is a problem solver --  I don't know anyone else who can "get it done" the way Cecelia can.
