Cindy Josbena has served as the Founder and Artistic Director of the Grace Moore Concert Series and began the Mexico Community Arts Council. Her musical interests include both solo performance and accompanying. In solo performing, she has participated in numerous SUNY Oswego and other upstate concert programs. Her recital program, both in Homer and in Syracuse represents an extension of her performance activities.
Her wide experience with vocal and instrumental soloists and with choral groups in Onondaga and Oswego counties as well as for the NYSSMA Festivals have placed her much in demand throughout the Central New York Area. She has also taught periodically in the Department of Music at SUNY Oswego and has accompanied for the Oswego College Choir organizations as well as college student and faculty instrumental performances.
She has studied with Dr. John Little, and with Dr. Anthony Crain, Professor Emeritus of SUNY, Owego. She holds dual degrees in Piano Performance and Music Education from Mansfield University in Pennsylvania. Other current performing activities include two-piano performances with Dr. Anthony Crain.
In June of 2007, Mrs. Josbena retired after 31 years of private teaching and has recently acquired a Certification in Nutraceutical Consulting and Marketing.
