A+C Arts + Culture Magazine Houston "Shannon Langman has imagination and gumption in spades, creating a niche for herself as a singer, music educator, and photographer. A graduate of University of Houston’s Moores School of Music, she is a frequent concert soloist with Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church under the baton of Houston Symphony Chorus director, Charles Hausmann. As a music educator, Smith produces recitals with professional singers and students, and she uses her photographic skills in service to young singers at the start of their careers. “I have felt fulfilled and accepted in the Houston arts community like no other place, giving me freedom to stretch the possibilities of the artist I want to become, and open myself to mentor others,” says Langman. -Misha Penton (December 2012)
