Megan Sullivan, violin, is an active freelancer residing in Cleveland Ohio. Accomplished as both a classical and contemporary performer, she has played hundreds of concerts, weddings, and events with repertoire varying from classical to rock, with a little bit of everything in between. Megan is comfortable performing, improvising, sight-reading, transcribing, arranging, singing and studio recording. A few of her most notable performances include playing with Grammy award winners Michael Bublé & Josh Groban, as well as the Trans Siberian Orchestra and the Playhouse Square Orchestra. She is currently the violinist-in-residence at the beautiful Marble Room in downtown Cleveland.
Orchestrally, she has performed with The Firelands Symphony in Sandusky Ohio, the Playhouse Square orchestra, was a member of the Ohio Light Opera pit, and has been a substitute with many orchestras such as the Mansfield Symphony (Ohio), the Kentucky Symphony, and more. Specializing in weddings, Megan has played over 200 ceremonies! She can play any song request you may have; either as a soloist, duet, trio or quartet.
Equally passionate about contemporary music, she has played with many bands and ensembles. Most recently, she performed with Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, Wesley Bright & the Honeytones, and served as the vio-cellist with the Cleveland rock-band, Seafair. She has also been seen with bands such as Remember Jones (pop/soul), The Dan Varner Band (country), The Rainbow Emergency (neo-soul), multiple wedding bands, and more. She also enjoys performing her own songs using a loop pedal to loop vocals and violin, creating a unique contemporary-classical sound.
In 2014, Megan graduated from the Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music where she was a student of Dr. Julian Ross as a violin-performance major. While at BW, she was grateful for many prestigious opportunities, such as performing in masterclasses with renowned artists such as Takako Masame and Stephen Rose of The Cleveland Orchestra, working directly with acclaimed composer Christopher Theofanidis, and playing in the BW Bach Chamber Orchestra all four of her years at BW. This auditioned festival experience entails performing alongside faculty and Cleveland Orchestra members. During the 2013-2014 year, Megan also served as the concertmaster of the Baldwin Wallace Symphony Orchestra.
Megan is originally from Cincinnati, where she studied with Ms. Dorothy Han and Mr. Gabe Pegis. She has attended various prestigious summer music festivals such as AIMS - the American Institute of Musical Studies (Graz, Austria), Interlochen Arts Camp, Brevard Music Center, and The Boston University Tanglewood Institute. In these settings, she worked one-on-one with many acclaimed teachers and performers such as Dylana Jenson, Timothy Christie, Maria Sampen, the Attacca Quartet, and more.
