Meg Brennan is an active flutist and saxophonist in Detroit, Michigan. At the age of 16, she was accepted into the internationally renowned Interlochen Arts Academy where she studied under classical and jazz flutist, Nancy Stagnitta. It was at Interlochen where she had the opportunity to play for flutists such as Paula Robison, Jeff Zook, and Greg Patillo. After a masterclass with The Project Trio, she discovered her love for improvisation and began to write her own music, often incorporating beatbox flute. She was featured on Fox 2 News Detroit where she played her own arrangement of the “Hey Arnold” theme song.
Upon graduating from Interlochen in 2011, she pursued both jazz and classical music at Michigan State University where she studied with jazz saxophonist, Diego Rivera, and flutist, Richard Sherman. Over the past three years, she has had the opportunity to play with famous jazz artists like Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Peter Bernstein, Rodney Whitaker, Jimmy Cobb, Anat Cohen, and Roy Hargrove. As a recent graduate from Michigan State University, Meg joined the prize-winning Beta Quartet, presenting concerts and workshops nation-wide. An active performer in Detroit, she has played at the Fox Theater, Cliff Bells, Ford Field, Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, and The Whitney. In 2017, she released her first single, “Silky Way”, an original composition featuring her on flute.
