Cynthia Gray is a composer and music educator. She has taught high school, junior high and elementary choral music as well as elementary general music. Her career in composition grew from the need for quality choral music for her own students. Her first compositions, The Clouds and Reach Out were met with immediate success, finding their way onto choral contest lists and inclusion in NAfME's "World's Largest Concert." Since that time, Mrs. Gray has written and published over fifty original choral compositions which have been sung and enjoyed by choirs across the country.
Mrs. Gray has served as guest conductor/clinician at numerous choral festivals, music conferences and workshops. She served on the executive board of the Ohio Choral Directors Association and is a member of the American Choral Directors Association, the Music Education National Conference, the Ohio Music Education Association, and the American Orff‑Schulwerk Association. She currently lives and teaches in Lebanon, Ohio.
