Cecelia Hobbs Gardner is a passionate advocate for musicians and especially for the musicians of Local 802. She has many years of experience as an attorney, a violinist on Broadway and with many orchestras in NYC, and on committees. I have known Cecelia for over 35 years and have always been impressed by her work ethic, intellect and persistence when it comes to issues of concern for musicians. She has been at the forefront of the current pension crisis and has made it her mission to understand the laws and how they pertain to the AFM-EPF.
