Megan Karls, violin
Megan Karls celebrates her eighth season with the Cascade Quartet and the Great Falls Symphony. She loves making her home in beautiful Montana, while also performing across the country in chamber music and orchestral engagements. A current member of the Boise Philharmonic, Megan has previously held orchestral positions across the Midwest, with the Wichita, Green Bay, Des Moines and other symphony orchestras.
As a chamber musician, Megan has been a guest artist across the nation, including Oberlin Conservatory, Lawrence University, Northern Illinois University, Roundtop, the Society for Electroacoustic Music in the US and at the International Double Reed Society. She has spent several summers performing chamber music with Assisi Performing Arts in Italy, and in 2019 was invited to travel to El Salvador as a Teaching Artist with MusAid, an organization that partners with budding socially-minded music education programs across the world.
Megan is grateful to her mentors at Lawrence University and the University of Iowa, where she completed degrees with honors in Violin Performance and Political Science. When she's not holding a violin, Megan loves gardening, watching Green Bay Packer football, and adventuring with her husband, David.
