About Cyn


Cynthia’s jazz career is an example of the wonders of social media. Several years ago while relatively new to the Tulsa area she made a chance connection on Facebook to one of the city’s finest jazz pianists, Scott McQuade. Through Scott she was introduced to Chuck Cissel, The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, and through there, many other  people who have been influential  in her life….the rest as the saying goes, is history.

Cynthia has performed in many local venues including the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Ciao, Smoke. on Cherry St, Main St. Tavern-Broken Arrow/Cherry St, Lefty’s on Greenwood, Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, Juniper, 624 Kitchen, Doc’s Wine and Food,  Kirin Asian Fusion, Harwelden Mansion, Sisserou’s and various others.

She has also been featured in several festivals such as the TEG International Jazz Fest Presented by SpiritBank, Big Bands, Big Voices:The Concert!, The Chet Baker Festival, The Rose Festival, The International Jazz Day Celebration, and the PostOak Wine and Jazz Festival just to name a few. Cynthia has connected with the Tulsa jazz community and over the years, has become one of the more recognized and popular jazz vocalists in the area.

When she’s not singing, Cynthia is a wife, mom of two young adults, and employed as a human resources professional. But music, especially Jazz, is never far away.

TEG/Tulsa Jazz CEO John Taylor states “Jazz is a growth music. By that I mean we have an opportunity to reach a whole untapped generation with this wonderful music, and International Jazz Day is an incredible awareness tool.
I want the world to see how this wonderful music can bring unity to people from different countries and backgrounds; that it’s possible to truly come together for a common cause. We need this in the world right now.”

In December 2012, the United Nations General Assembly formally welcomed the decision by the UNESCO General Conference to proclaim April 30 as International Jazz Day.

In 2016 TulsaJazz.com had the honor of being the producer of Tulsa’s first official participation since the event’s inception in 2012. (See http://www.jazzday.com for additional details).

The United Nations and UNESCO now both recognize International Jazz Day on their official calendars.” (Taken from jazzday.com)
