Megan Wittig, Voice Instructor
On her musical background...
"I have been singing as long as I can remember. My first official solo performance was at the ripe old age of three for my great-grandma's 80th birthday party. I sang "Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sun Shine In". Three was a big year for me; I asked to begin piano lessons and discovered the effervescent Julie Andrews through my first viewing of The Sound of Music. I must have really known my own mind because all three of those things have a remained a constant source of joy in my life.
Growing up in rural Saskatchewan, there was always music in the house. My Nana taught piano for almost 50 years, my mom has sung and played piano her entire life, and my younger brother has been in a wide variety of bands, singing lead vocals and playing guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin. I discovered classical singing at 14 years old when I began voice lessons with Joanne Collier. I had been a member of the Medicine Hat College Girls' Choir under her direction for two years prior, and I was excited when she had room for me in her studio."
On her mentors...
"Dr. Blaine Hendsbee has been an incredible force for good in my musical life. I began studying with him in 2008 when I entered the BMus program at the U of L, and he remains an encouraging and supportive presence in my life."
On her vision for the future of classical music in Lethbridge...
"I envision more accessibility to this wonderful art form. Everyone should have classical music in their life, and we need to provide it to new audiences in innovative and engaging ways. I also want to see more opportunities to showcase the incredible performers that already live in this city. The saturation of accomplished and talented musicians in this city is unreal!"
Megan Wittig has been teaching voice with the Conservatory of Music since 2013, and is the recipient of the 2019 Young Artist Award!
