Dr. Meg Gurtcheff

Meg holds a Bachelors in Church Music, Conducting emphasis, from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. Her Masters in Sacred Music, Choral Conducting emphasis, is from Emory University. And her Doctor of Musical Arts, Choral Conducting, is from the University of Kentucky. She has been involved in church music her entire life. From a love of crafting liturgy, to her interest in both choral groups of all kinds and ages, and orchestras, Meg embodies both the breadth of knowledge, and the passion for, everything that our Music & Worship ministry encompasses.

In addition to being a conductor, Meg sings soprano, and plays viola, violin, and Hardanger Fiddle (a Norwegian folk instrument). She holds membership in a number of professional associations directly related to her areas of expertise.

Originally from Athens, GA, many of her family members are UGA grads (go Dawgs!). She herself always cheers for UGA.

In her spare time, Meg enjoys reading, walking, and all things Disney. And as someone with Celiac Disease (which means she can’t eat gluten), but who also loves pasta and chicken nuggets, she keeps dozens of gluten substitutes and favorite gluten- free treats in the family kitchen. Like Dove chocolate!
