Megan Moran, Rural Outreach Director

Megan rejoined the Ethos Music Center family as Rural Outreach Director in April 2017. Megan is a Northwest native who received a Bachelor of Arts from Lewis and Clark College, focusing on violin and voice performance. She served as a Rural Music Facilitator AmeriCorps member in the towns of Fossil, Condon, and Long Creek, Oregon, cultivating music programming in communities that wouldn’t otherwise have access. After completing her service, she transitioned to Rural Outreach Program Coordinator, Rural Outreach Program Director, and Director of Programs at Ethos headquarters.

In 2013, Megan was selected to participate in the El Sistema Fellowship at the New England Conservatory, in which she was immersed in the global music and social change movement founded in Venezuela. In 2014, she was also selected to be a Byron Fellow, a cohort of emerging leaders cultivating generative efforts across sectors in their communities. Following her time in Boston, she became Lead Teaching Artist at El Sistema Colorado in Denver, CO, collaboratively teaching and managing programming for over 700 underserved students. Also in alignment with her passion for the arts and social justice, Megan has worked as a Teaching Artist Assistant with Caldera, a nonprofit in rural Oregon and the Portland metro area. Through her former career as a music librarian, Megan has worked with the Oregon Symphony, Pink Martini, and Aspen Music Festival. When she is not in her administrative or teaching roles, she performs with classical, folk and vintage jazz ensembles across the Northwest.

It is Megan’s belief that all students deserve access to the benefits of music and music education. She is grateful for the opportunity to help realize that mission with the amazing staff, AmeriCorps members, and families of Ethos. Contact:
