Trevor James Low Flutes Artist
Faculty, Texas Wesleyan University
Modern and Baroque flutist Meg Griffith has been hailed as “an excellent flutist…playing at breakneck speed…facility with total control” who “radiated calm serenity and impressionistic colors, giving…a fine opportunity to exhibit her beautiful, singing tone.” (New York Concert Review). A flutist for the Texas New Music Ensemble, her passion for new music and support of living composers through commissioning projects has led to eight World Premieres. Meg especially enjoys the chance to collaborate with composers, creating a balance of her or his voice and her own. On the opposite end of the spectrum, she regularly performs on traverso and recorder and gives workshops on Baroque interpretation and ornamentation.
Meg has her 200-hour yoga certification which she incorporates into her musical and pedagogical life. She offers Yoga for Musicians classes geared toward simplifying and solidifying the physical and mental practices of artists. Her approach reflects our need for awareness, compassion, and love for ourselves and others, especially within our musical community. She helps each individual build their personal foundation for calm and clear problem solving and full appreciation and focus on the moment, both within the asana itself and within musical workshops in connection with movement.
She has presented and performed at the Canadian Flute Festival, the British Flute Society’s Convention, and the National Flute Association’s Annual Convention. In addition to performing, Griffith has been actively involved in service as Assistant Program Chair of the National Flute Association’s 2011 Convention and the President and Industry/Commercial Liaison of the Texas Flute Society. She now serves as Chair of the Archives and Oral History Committee of the NFA.
Meg serves on the faculty of Texas Wesleyan University.
