Here Comes Treble
ABOUT THE COMPOSER
Meredith was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 2000, and moved to Omaha, Nebraska, in 2015. She is a double major in chemistry (pre-pharmacy) and music composition at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and studied composition with Prof. Tom Larson, Dr. Greg Simon, and Dr. Tyler White. She has been commissioned by the O'Gorman Junior High School (SD), Huron Middle School (SD), and V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School (NE) concert bands, as well as several collegiate ensembles. Her works have also been read by the UNL Wind Ensemble and the UNL Symphonic Band. She has also been selected as the winner of composition competitions around the United States.
She premieres new works during the Flyover New Music Series, and had music featured on Nebraska Educational Telecommunications's show "What If...". Meredith has performed with the University Chorale, Campus Band, Symphonic Band, Big Band, Big Red Express, and the Cornhusker Marching Band. Outside of music, she is a devoted member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority and has previously held internship and employee positions with the University of Nebraska Medical Center. In her limited spare time, she reads and spends time with beloved family, friends, and pets.
Most of Meredith's works are about people, imagery, and evoking emotions. These compositions replicate the same feelings in her audience that she has felt. Meredith believes that music speaks more than words ever could, and she uses that philosophy to the best of her ability when she writes new compositions. She is always excited to create new works with other musicians!
