Cecilia Nicholson began playing accordion just a year ago. She quickly adapted to the instrument with background in piano, which she started playing at age three. She continues with private piano instruction and the strings orchestra at school. Cecilia is now 16, a sophomore at St. Gregory College Prep School in Tucson. She enjoys education. English, History and her language classes, Latin and elective French, are favorite areas of study. Her many other interests include sports (soccer, swimming, and tennis), Greek folk dancing, and travel. Cecilia lived internationally in many places before she came to Tucson, of which she remembers best her second grade year in Denmark.
