Cecilia has been studying the work of
Mary Lou Williams for the past 5 1/2 years. She created
the Mary Lou Williams Resurgence Project where she is
currently the Artistic Director. During this year's
Kennedy Center Celebration, Cecilia put together an
all-star, mixed-gendered, multi-generational big band
and brought in the Morgan State University Choir to
perform the complex works of Mary Lou Williams. Cecilia
received rave reviews for
this performance! Cecilia also received a Berklee College
Of Music Alumni Grant that aided her in the continuation
of the project.
