NAMED INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SYMPHONY
Lee’s Summit native Shannon Lawrence has been selected to serve as Interim Executive Director for the Lee’s Summit Symphony. Ms. Lawrence, a charter member of the orchestra, just completed a term as the first female President of the Board of Directors. She plays French horn and percussion in the orchestra, and also entertains locally on piano and guitar, directs a local church choir, and head a staff of studio and ensemble music teachers.
Gary Fruits, current Board President, said, “Shannon is ideally suited to fulfill the executive role at this time, having worked closely with the retiring E.D., Gloria Helmer. We are very fortunate to have someone so familiar with the orchestra who was available to step in at this critical juncture.”
Under Ms. Lawrence’s leadership, the orchestra received an Accelerate Grant from the Missouri Arts Council which enabled the development of more professional organization and operations by the orchestra’s Board. “We are now uniquely positioned to move forward toward our mission of providing high-quality, live performances for our community,” said Fruits.
The mission of the Lee’s Summit Symphony is to enhance the local cultural experience by providing high-quality, accessible live performances that inspire, educate and entertain.
