Featured Musician

Shannon Fitzhenry, Concertmaster

# OF YEARS PLAYING WITH EPSO: 

One full season before the pandemic, and now looking forward to starting another wonderful season in September! I have sincerely missed everyone in El Paso Symphony in the last year. 

 

EMPLOYMENT OUTSIDE OF EPSO: 

I sub frequently with both the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, and I am Principal Second violinist of Symphony in C based in New Jersey. 

 

OTHER ARTS GROUPS YOU PERFORM WITH:  

I have recently joined a group called Fever, and they have a wonderful quartet concert series countrywide entitled The Candlelight Series. I perform various programs each week in DC, which has been great fun. I also am a member of Kennedy Quartet, a wedding event group, and we perform frequently in the greater Baltimore and DC area. 

 

HOBBIES: 

I discovered in the last year that I actually am able to keep plants alive and I have loved learning about different kinds of indoor plants! I am up to 14 and going strong. I also enjoy running, drawing, and spending time with my adorable 3 year old half blind cat, Molly!

 

PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: 

My partner, Alex, and I are actually on a pool league team and we play pool competitively every week. Surprisingly, I get more nervous to play a match than I do when I walk on stage in El Paso! It has gotten me out of my comfort zone in music and has been so much fun. Also, I am a bit of a dare devil and went skydiving a few years ago...something I would do again in a heartbeat!
