Publicist Cynthia Semon dies

Founded CS Communications

Publicist Cynthia Semon, who founded CS Communications, died March 28 in Los Angeles of cancer. She was 46.

The L.A.-based Semon produced the historic Music Bridges 1999 songwriting exchange, which gave U.S. rock stars including Bonnie Raitt, Michael Franti, Mick Fleetwood and Peter Frampton the chance to go to Cuba to play with their local counterparts.

She continued to develop numerous events over the following 10 years, including the 2005 Audioslaves concert in Cuba, which drew over 50,000 people, the largest event of its kind since the Cuban revolution.

She guided Amanda Tapping’s career from “Stargate SG-1” co-star to producer and star of “Sanctuary,” which transitioned from the Internet to TV.

Survivors include her husband, Marc Cadieux; her father and a sister.

Donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
