The North Valley Symphony Orchestra (NVSO) announced the selection of Ellen Hansbury as Concertmaster for the 2021–22 season.
Hansbury began studying the violin at the age of four. She went on to major in violin performance at the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music under Kurt Sassmannshaus. She later earned her MBA from UC and decided to pursue a career in marketing. With a strong passion for music and performing, she continued to play in community orchestras. Hansbury joined NVSO in 2015 and says she thoroughly enjoys the musicianship and sense of community the organization brings.
NVSO music director and conductor Kevin Kozacek said, “Ellen is a fabulous violinist! We were so pleased that the selection committee settled on her as the new NVSO concertmaster. We look forward to showcasing her talents during some of the repertoire included in our upcoming season.”
