“Her additional law degree has expanded her ability to advocate for others .... She has also been a non-stop mentor for succeeding generations of younger musicians."

I've known Cecelia Hobbs Gardner for 40 years, since our days together at The Juilliard School. Today, she appears as accomplished, intelligent and vivacious as she did to me then! Her additional law degree has expanded her ability to advocate for others, showing no hesitation to speak up when important issues, like our pension plan, need addressing. She has also been a non-stop mentor for succeeding generations of younger musicians.
