Megan Cumming

Soprano

An advocate of the cathartic and healing power of music, American soprano, Megan Cumming, aspires to use her singing to help alleviate pain and suffering. Distinguishing herself through passions for both music and medicine, Megan actively seeks to integrate her interests into a comprehensive and meaningful career path.

A newly inducted member of Pittsburgh-founded Musicians with a Mission, Megan is excited to continue to share concerts with local nursing homes and facilities. In January of 2021, while covering Mrs. Fiorentino in Weill’s Street Scene (Opera McGill), Megan was thrilled to go on at the last minute for performances at Le Monument-National Theater in Montreal, QC. Other notable performance credits include the First Spirit in Mozart’s Die Zauberfl√∂te (Opera McGill), Margot in Dauvergene’s Les Troquers (Opera McGill), and Laurey in Rodger & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! (The Hanover Theater).

Most recently heard as Cendrillon in Viardot’s Cendrillon (CMU Opera), Laetitia in Menotti’s The Old Maid & the Thief, and the fairy godmother in Rodger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Opera McGill), Megan was grateful to share these comedic performances with audiences isolated from the Covid-19 pandemic. A graduate of the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, Megan earned her Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance under the tutelage of Joanne Kolomyjec, Patrick Hansen, Stephen Hargreaves, and Dana Nigrim. She was thrilled to graduate with Distinction and Outstanding Achievement in Voice, and was also placed on the Dean’s Honour List and awarded the Dixie Ross Neill Scholarship. A Massachusetts native, Megan currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pa, where she is pursuing her Masters of Music at Carnegie Mellon University with soprano, Maria Spacagna. She looks forward to the summer of 2022, when she will perform as a young artist with the Hans and Leslie Fleischner Young Artists Program with Pittsburgh Festival Opera.
