Cynthia’s compositions have been described by reviewers as “confident and musical in expressing ideas of great substance,” “intriguing and enjoyable,” and “imaginatively scored” She has received commissions from such organizations as Network for New Music, the Relâche Ensemble, the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia, Astral Artistic Services, and the National Flute Association, and she earned 20 consecutive ASCAP Awards for composition. Cynthia’s pieces are recorded on many CD’s, including a 2006 release by the Relâche Ensemble, Press Play, by Meyer Music and a 2006 release of Flute Loops: Chamber Music for Flute (including eight of her compositions, with Cynthia as flutist on four tracks) by Centaur Records. Another CD—a “sequel” to Flute Loops—is scheduled for summer 2014, again featuring her compositions for flute.

She also recorded a jazz CD, Portfolio (Centaur Records), which includes four original compositions—now available only as a download.
