Matt Brennan and Meg Aspinwall return to River Arts on Water Gallery for a (mostly) music theatre house concert.
Matt Brennan is originally from Prairie du Sac, WI where he began his studies in voice performance. A 2005 graduate of Sauk Prairie High School, Matthew is forever thankful for the wonderful music educators that helped shape his path. Matt’s studies continued after high school at Drake University in Des Moines, IA with a focus on Music Education and Vocal Performance. After finishing his degree in Iowa, Matt returned to Wisconsin to become the Choral Music Director at Sauk Prairie Middle School. After three years working at the middle school level, Matt transitioned to Sauk Prairie High School where he runs daily choral activities, an annual musical, madrigal dinner, two competitive show choirs, and three a cappella ensembles. Most recently you may have seen him as Barfee in SPTG’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. He is grateful to be in such an arts rich community and is excited about his future as the continuing Director of Choirs at Sauk Prairie High School.
Originally from Madison, Meg is a graduate of Verona High School where she thrived in the music and theatre programs. Meg studied Vocal Performance at UW-Eau Claire and following graduation, moved to NYC to study musical theatre performance at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. She spent four years in NYC and when she returned home she joined the production team St. Ambrose Academy’s Beauty and the Beast (2013) and Annie (2014), and Sauk Prairie High School’s Beauty and the Beast (2015) and Curtains (2015). Meg was recently seen in SPTG’s The 25th Annual Pitnam County Spelling Bee (Rona and Co-Director), MTM’s La Cage Aux Folles (Madame Renaud), MTM’s staged reading of Nightmare Alley (directed by Karen Olivo), Four Season’s Guys and Dolls (ensemble) and was named one of Overture Center’s Rising Stars in it’s inaugural competition in 2014.
House concerts are casual, intimate, solo or small ensemble musical performances designed around the notion of having friends over to your living room to enjoy live music (or in this case, a gallery!) There is no advance ticket sale, only a $10 suggested donation at the door. Beverages provided by Woodshed Ale House!
