  • Biography

    Hello! My name is Megan and I am currently the Reed 1 player for the national tour of "Fiddler on the Roof," for which I play flute, clarinet, piccolo, and alto flute. I joined the tour in April of 2022 and will continue on through May of 2023.

    I recently graduated with my Master's Degree in Flute Performance from the New England Conservatory, where I studied flute and piccolo with Cynthia Meyers, piccoloist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Barnard College of Columbia University, where I studied with Linda Chesis and Michael Parloff through Barnard’s lesson exchange program with the Manhattan School of Music. Throughout high school, I studied with Jim Walker.

    I have played Reed books for various on-campus and regional productions including "The Drowsy Chaperone," "Spelling Bee," "The Addams Family," and "Camelot." I also conducted two musicals during my time at Columbia: "Spring Awakening" and "Legally Blonde."

    As for classical music, I won NEC's Wind Ensemble Concerto Competition and was able to perform Bruce Broughton's "Piccolo Concerto for Piccolo and Wind Ensemble" in February of 2022. I was chosen as an alternate for the National Flute Association's Piccolo Artist Competition in 2022. Throughout my time at NEC, I was able to play principal flute, piccolo, and alto flute for various orchestra and wind ensemble performances. I also played alto saxophone in NEC's saxophone ensemble and clarinet in various conducting ensembles on campus. I was the co-Principal flutist of the Columbia University Orchestra under Jeffrey Milarsky for 4 years. Lastly, I was a YoungArts Winner on Classical Piccolo in 2016.
