She has performed with the Symphonic Winds of the Pacific, OC Wind Symphony, Southern California Brass Consortium, and the Inland Valley Symphony. Meghan has recently branched out into recording, and can be heard on singer-songwriter Alma’s Travel Size EP (hearalma.com). In addition to her ensemble and recording experience, Meghan has performed for dignitaries including Reza Pahlavi, the crown prince of Iran, and Bishop Thomas Olmstead of Phoenix. Meghan enjoys an active gigging career, performing for weddings, church events, receptions and more around Orange and LA County.

Meghan studied with Karen Atz, harpist for the Madison Symphony, at University of Wisconsin, Madison. In her studies at UW, Meghan received a departmental scholarship from the School of Music, as well as multiple scholarships from the Margaret Rupp Cooper fund for Harpists. During the summer of 2013 Meghan attended the Young Artist’s Harp Seminar in Rabun Gap, Georgia, where she studied with Judy Loman of the Toronto Symphony and Susan Brady of the Atlanta Opera.

When she is not performing, Meghan keeps busy by teaching. She was the assistant harp director at WYSO from 2010 to 2013, where she coached and conducted the harp ensemble and worked with students on orchestral repertoire. Meghan is passionate about teaching and maintains a private studio out of her home.
