During her music career she has had the opportunity to open for Bob Carlise, work with Everything on their album People Are Moving, and perform with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Megan Hallam
Megan Hallam Ms. Hallam’s background in music includes both management and performance. She has performed with the Chattanooga Choral Arts, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Orchestra Atlanta, the Rome Symphony, and now The Georgia Philharmonic. A cellist and singer for over 25 years, her experience with the inner workings of a non-profit arts organization began in 1984, when her family founded the Sandy Springs Chamber Orchestra (which became Orchestra Atlanta in 1994), the organization that laid the groundwork for The Georgia Philharmonic. Megan Hallam has extensive experience in event planning that lends itself perfectly to her current position with The Georgia Philharmonic. While earning her degree from Swarthmore College, Megan Hallam worked for the Music Department as manager of its college chorus, performing many of the same duties she later handled as Personnel Manager for Orchestra Atlanta. Prior to assuming that position, she worked as a special project consultant for Orchestra Atlanta, coordinating both web development and the production of several concert series.
