Hello lovely people. So after half the year, so far bereft of positive work announcements I am so thrilled to announce that in September I began studying on a Masters course at Trinity Laban, in Greenwich. I am so excited about this great opportunity, especially as Trinity have upgraded my course to a Masters, accepting a recognition of prior learning in lieu of the fact that I don’t have a Bachelors degree. This was planned long before lockdown, when I anticipated I would be performing, busking, doing singing waitress jobs etc. to earn money towards the tuition fees, but sadly I have been in lockdown like the rest of my industry and only able to do the occasional online charity gig. So, I am asking anyone who would like to (and more importantly can afford to) support me by donating to my GoFundMe page. Whether it is £1, £5, £10 or whatever you would like to give, I will be most grateful for your contribution and your support. And every penny will go to my tuition fees.
As a thank you to those who donate, I will invite you to suggest a song that you would like recorded and I will select one a week to record and post on my site (within reason, any Led Zepplin fans might be out of luck!). Sorry I cannot record everyone’s suggestions, as I will be busy with course work and studying. And if you are not able to donate, I totally understand. 2020 has been a really tough year for everyone, and it’s not over yet!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and please do stay safe and enjoy the music!
With the Covid 19 crisis affecting so many aspects of 2020 live gigs and operas have all had to be cancelled or postponed, however like so many other performers Megan has begun several projects to bring music and virtual performances to people throughout this difficult time.
Below is a recording of Nella Fantasia from The Mission recorded as a tribute to the recently deceased film composer Ennio Maricone
Megan is thrilled to be a part of the all female singing group Sorelle who during lockdown have started an initiative called 'Sorelle: Still Singing' putting out ensemble videos on a regular basis on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube
During lockdown may have been struggling with the churches and places of worship being closed. So as part of her local parish Megan has been recording a weekly hymn for anyone who is finding the lack of organised worship a struggle in these unprecedented times.
During the Covid 19 crisis people have been reminded of other times in history when the world has faced frightening and unknown times, when loved ones are far away and we don't know if and when we'll see them again. music from the first and second world wars have become especially poignant in recent month especially with the passing of the great Dame Vera Lynn who's music brought comfort and joy to so many in their darkest hours. So included on this page is also a short tribute to her in the form of a recording of A Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
