Cecilia's Biography & Credits
Growing up in El Cerrito, CA, Cecilia was constantly hearing the sound of the Banjo which her mother would be practicing on for many hours a day.
She received her Bachelor in Arts of Music at California State University, Hayward. Shortly after graduation she was fortunate to land a job playing violin in a musical group called Regency Strings at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco. This was a fun and exciting job in which all the music was memorized. A little later, when she moved to Nevada, she played Violin at the Silver Legacy Resort and Casino for every Sunday brunch for thirteen years, at their fabulous Sterling's Sea food Steak house, until 2009. She now enjoys playing music for many special occasions and events.
Most of all, she feels blessed to have been able to work with some of the finest musicians and to have appeared with many legends in the entertainment industry such as Ella Fitzgerald, Victor Borge, Joel Grey, Bob Hope and many others.
Cecilia entertained and played music with her mother and Hall of Famer, Georgette Twain, for many years. Cecilia was one of the founders of the Carson Valley Pop's Orchestra and was concertmaster of that group for ten years. She now prefers to play music on her own.
