Lisa Hennessy, principal flute

Sep 28 2018

Lisa Hennessy has been the PSO’s principal flutist since 2000.  She is also principal flutist with the Boston Ballet Orchestra, Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, and performs regularly with Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Pops, Rhode Island Philharmonic, and others.  She also enjoys performing with Inside Out, her woodwind quintet.  Lisa teaches at St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire and  maintains a private flute studio. She has given masterclasses for the Greater Boston Flute Association, the Longy School of Music and the University of Southern Maine.    She holds a Master’s in Music, with distinction in performance, from the New England Conservatory, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music, summa cum laude, from the University of Houston.  While earning her degrees, she studied with Byron Hester, principal flutist of the Houston Symphony, and renowned flute soloist Paula Robison.  While doing her graduate studies, Lisa was the winner of Boston’s James Pappoutsakis Flute Competition and NEC’s Concerto Competition.  She has been a featured soloist on WGBH radio’s Boston Performances and with the Portland Symphony and Boston Landmarks Orchestra, and has made recordings for the A & E Cable Network and the Naxos American Classics and Chandos labels.  Lisa and her husband, Lance Levasseur, have a young son, Nathan, two absurdly affectionate cats and a house overflowing with Legos.
