She has also sat as Concert Master for the Bach Elgar Orchestra, the Korean Canadian Orchestra, Symphony on the Bay, and Talisker Players Toronto.


Not solely limited to classical repertoire, Cecilia has sat Concert Master for the Jeans 'n Classics Rock Orchestra and has performed with vocal artists such as Michael Bublé, Jim Cuddy, Diana Krall, Chantal Kreviazuk, Bruce Cockburn, Ian Thomas, Anne Murray, Matt Anderson, Il Devo and Placido Domingo.
