Semi-finalist of the 2011 Sphinx Competition, Sheena Gutierrez, is one of Miami’s promising young talents.

This early success paved the way to her performances in halls such as Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, New World Center, Adrienne Arsht Center, Harris Theater, Studzinski Hall, Benedict Music Tent, KKL Luzern Concert Hall (Switzerland), and König Albert Theater (Germany), among others.
Sheena regularly travels to festivals such as the Aspen Music Festival, Lucerne Academy Festival (Switzerland), Moritzburg Festival Academy (Germany), Bowdoin International Music Festival (Maine), and the European Union Orchestra (Austria), among others. She was also hand selected for 3 seasons, as one of the 130 highly gifted young musicians internationally, to travel to Lucerne, Switzerland and Paris, France to participate in the Lucerne Academy Festival founded by Pierre Boulez. In addition to her love of chamber music, Sheena is a current visiting artist with the South Beach Chamber Ensemble in their Up North Chamber Music Series in Wausau, Wisconsin. Along with Stepan Rudenko, pianist and husband, she has formed the Sotto Amore Duo in 2011 to inspire people with their love and passion for music. They are actively performing recitals around South Florida.

Sheena also has a strong passion for string pedagogy. She recorded a CD for The ABCs of Violin for the More Advanced, Book 4 with Janice Tucker Rhoda, author of the popular instruction series, the ABCs of Strings and Complete Technique, published by Carl Fischer Music. She currently holds a private teaching studio in Miami, FL with accomplished students that performed in Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center.

She studied with Thomas Moore, world-renowned Professor of Violin and Chamber Music at the New World School of the Arts and Professor Emeritus of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music. She completed her undergraduate degree at the Boston Conservatory of Music studying with Rictor Noren. She is currently a Teaching Assistant and a Henry Mancini Fellow student at the University of Miami pursuing her Doctorate studies with Charles Castleman. Sheena is a freelancer performing with orchestras such as the Symphonia, Opus One Orchestra of Miami City Ballet, Palm Beach Symphony, and Florida Grand Opera.
