In addition, Meg also serves as the director of the Spokane Symphony Chorale. Most recently, she served as assistant professor of choral music education in the Hayes School of Music at Appalachian State University in North Carolina. There she conducted the Appalachian Glee Club, Appalachian Chorale, Appalachian Youth Chorale, and mentored many pre-service music educators. Dr. Stohlmann is an active member of the American Choral Directors Association and serves on the Northwest region’s board. She was also selected as one of six conductors to participate in the ACDA International Conductor’s Exchange program. She will host a conductor from Germany and travel to Germany in the summer of 2023 to represent the United States. Originally from Santa Rosa, California, Meg taught choir and guitar at the middle and high school level in Lexington, KY for six years and conducted the Danville Children’s Choir. Her children’s choir and high school advanced women’s choirs performed at the Kentucky Music Educators State Conference in 2014 and 2015, respectively. She earned her Doctoral of Musical Arts Degree at the University of Washington and Masters degree in Voice Performance and Choral Conducting from the University of Kentucky. A graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Meg also served on active duty in the Air Force for 5 years in Arizona, Korea and Germany. She separated from the military in 2004 to pursue a second bachelor’s degree in Music Education at Sonoma State University. Meg’s lifelong love of choral music began as a charter member of the Santa Rosa Children’s Chorus where she sang for over 10 years and credits with her decision to make music education her career.

The Chorale enjoys a dedicated volunteer base of over 80 singers from all across the metro Spokane area; including many who commute from Coeur d’Alene, Davenport, Sandpoint, Pullman, and many other locations. These musicians participate in the over 100 hours of volunteer rehearsal and performance time required for each concert season. The professions of these volunteers are varied and include music educators, church choir directors, opera and theater performers, doctors, nurses, realtors, salesmen, homemakers, and many others who come together to share a love of singing.
