Cynthia Hiebert has performed both traditional and contemporary harpsichord works in Canada, the United States and England. She studied with Colin Tilney and Arthur Haas, and as a recipient of the Gelber Fellowship, completed a doctorate in harpsichord performance at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. She now teaches harpsichord at Wilfrid Laurier University and piano at the Beckett School of the Arts. In addition to work as a soloist, she has collaborated with numerous ensembles including New York Baroque, North Shore Pro Musica, I Furiosi, Spiritus, Numus, the York Symphony Orchestra, the Penderecki String Quartet, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra and the Nota Bene Period Orchestra.

Notable solo projects include a performance of Gyorgy Ligeti's Hungarian Rock for the David Earle Dance Company and Numus, and a recording of Peter Hatch's 'In a Vernacular Way', released on the Artifact label and voted best Contemporary/Experimental Classical CD release performance on CBC Radio's Discdrive. In addition to her world premiere of Peter Hatch's 'Tai', she collaborated with Mei Han for the 2005 Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound in a recital of new and traditional works for Chinese zheng and harpsichord, including the world premiere of a piece which combines both instruments, possibly for the first time. Ms. Hiebert has been honoured to perform Bach's Concerto in D minor with three different ensembles, in four well-received performances, but her most important collaboration to date, has been offspring Gabriel (b.2001) and Isabelle (b.2006).
