Described as “spirited and intellectual,” Indianapolis-based musician Cecily Terhune enjoys a rewarding career as a performer, recording artist, and educator. She concertizes regularly as a soloist and proud member of funk-fusion septet Audiodacity and the Hood/Terhune Duo, among other groups. When not on stage, Terhune shares her passion for music by teaching private students and sectionals at Carmel and Noblesville High Schools, serving as a member of the Committee for Gender Equity in the North American Saxophone Alliance, and maintaining her educational YouTube channel.
Sought after for her drive and versatility, Terhune is a successful performer in a broad variety of musical spaces and genres. She is an expressive solo recitalist, a jazz combo leader, a woodwind doubler, a saxophone quartet performer, and a regular recording artist for publishers including Hal Leonard. Terhune has performed all across the United States and internationally in Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Japan.
Terhune is passionate about contemporary music and seeks to connect modern listeners with music that will mentally challenge and emotionally engage the deeper self. Her primary musical ambitions are to promote inclusivity by inviting all listeners to enjoy traditionally “academic” music and to blur the lines of musical genres to further sonic possibilities.
