Meg Brennan is a saxophonist and flutist from Detroit, Michigan. Her musical journey began at 10 years old when she began playing the flute. In 2010, she was accepted to the internationally renowned Interlochen Arts Academy where she studied flute with Nancy Stagnitta. After graduating from Interlochen in 2011, she decided to continue her education at Michigan State University where she earned a Bachelors in Flute Performance and Jazz Studies.
