Megan Gallagher is a vocal performer and storyteller who received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the esteemed Westminster Choir College in Princeton NJ. During her time there, she developed and tested her strengths in both the Musical Theater and the Classical arena. Megan was cast as principal characters in consecutive Musical Theater performances (Gussie Carnegie- Merrily We Roll Along, Rona Lisa Peretti- The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Edwin Drood- The Mystery of Edwin Drood) throughout her college career. Most recently, Megan has enjoyed working at Regional houses such as The Walnut Street Theater in Philadelphia as well as in NY with Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning Theater Producer John McDaniel on his 50th-anniversary production of Hair.
Classically trained, Megan feels fortunate to have performed at such venues as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kimmel Center, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and others, under such maestros as Yannick Nezet-Seguin and Alan Gilbert. Megan earned 1st place in The National Association Of Teachers Of Singing Competition (NATS) in the classical division. Additionally, she was selected to perform as a soloist in the annual Westminster Choir College Art Song Festival, with coach Dr. J.J. Penna, where she performed a William Bolcom set. Megan secured her first solo recorded on a nationally distributed coral album, with Grammy-nominated conductor Dr. James Jordan (Carolae Christmas- I Wonder As I Wander) with Grammy-nominated producer Dr. James Whitbourn of Oxford, UK under the NAXOS label. She has continued her work as a recording soloist with The Same Stream Choir on 2 professional, internationally distributed albums with producer Adrian Peacock of The King Singers and Tenebrae. Megan has been thrilled to perform these soprano solos from the beautiful works of Paul Mealor, Dr. Thomas Lavoy and Steve Pilkington around the North East of the US and Europe.
Born and raised on Long Island, she now lives in Manhattan where she can and will resurrect her accent when needed. She is a vegetarian who is trying to become a vegan but loves cheese too much. In her free time, she enjoys studying performances of her favorite artists and singing soul music in the shower. Megan is EMC and looks forward to future projects. Megan is excited to be a member of the EA family!
