What has been the most important part of your conservatory experience?

The most important part of my experience in the conservatory has been all the incredible chamber music opportunities I have had. I have been able to work with so many of the faculty members and students and it is this collaboration that makes music making so enjoyable for me.

How will your time here have influence on your career in music?

Music will always be a central part in my life. Although my first job will not directly relate to music I still plan to take lessons and perform in ensembles. My time here has only further solidified my life long passion for music.

What are your plans for after graduation?

Next year I will work as a teacher for the Success Academy Charter Schools in New York City.

Tell me about your recital.

My recital is made up of pieces I truly love. They are all really beautiful melodic works that are emotive and really rewarding to play. I can’t wait to share them with my audience.

What is your advice for future conservatory students?

My advice to future conservatory students is to collaborate with as many people as possible while you are here. We have so many resources at our finger tips and I really encourage people to play music you love with as many people as possible.

Meggie Loughran’s senior recital is on April 15th at 2:30pm in Paul Recital Hall, Schmucker Hall.
