Voice and Piano
Meg Huskin is a composer, vocalist and pianist currently based in Rogers Park. She earned her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and currently works in the Marketing department of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She studies composition with New York-based composer Gilda Lyons, and she formerly studied voice with Mimmi Fulmer.
As a composer, her work frequently combines vocal melody, creative harmonies and her own lyrics to tell stories that blur the boundary between modern and traditional themes. In 2017, she completed the libretto for her first opera, Fayaway, which is currently being written. In 2016, her choral work They Tore Down the Church won UW-Madison’s Mullins Sacred Music Prize. Meg was invited to participate in the first New Amsterdam Records’ Composer’s Workshop, a seminar led by composer William Brittelle exploring the topic of post-genre music, as well as the inaugural LunART festival celebrating women in the arts with composer-in-residence Jenni Brandon. She has also participated in the Wintergreen Composer’s Retreat and the Music in Italy program in Florence.
Meg remains an active choral and operatic singer, and she takes a special interest in new and contemporary music, including jazz and musical theater. Upcoming projects include working with Petite Opera Company on their 2018 production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni and last year she participated in the Harrower Summer Opera Festival, playing “Sister Geraldine” in Poulenc’s Dialogue of the Carmelites. In 2017 she won first place in the NATS North Central Region Auditions.
As a teacher, Meg has worked with a wide expanse of students, from children as young as four years old to adult beginners. Meg loves helping students find ways to be creative and express themselves, while establishing a firm foundation in the essential skills of music.
