Meganne Jarvie, Born and raised in Provo Utah, is a Senior at Brigham Young University-Idaho studying Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design. She is the youngest of 3 and music has been a part of her life for the greater part of it. With wonderful musical examples to look to from her Mother, and two older brothers, Meganne took up after school violin and choir in elementary school to learn the world of music for herself, a beautiful skill and to learn how music soothes the soul. Meganne sang solos in choir, recorded a cover with her activity group and sang in her Church choir. Choir didn’t appeal to her as much as her mother had hoped, but the violin did. Meganne has played for over 12 years and is, happily, an amateur violinist.
In her Senior Year of High School, her mother encouraged her to take up choir once again to rekindle that love she had for vocal performance. In that year, she performed with her choir the Forgotten Carols, and toured with the A Cappella choir and Philharmonic Orchestra to Disney Land where they recorded select Disney music tracks and performed for the park. Since then, Meganne has developed a deeper love for vocal performance.
In her college experience, Meganne has participated in BYU-Idaho’s Women’s Choir under the direction of Dr. Rebecca Lord in addition to Echo Luminos which later turned to Rexburg Chamber Singers both under the direction of David Torres. Meganne served an 18-month mission to the people of Oregon where she used music to help teach.
Meganne recently married in August of 2018 to Donavaghn Jarvie and has greatly appreciated his support of her pursuing art in addition to her other joy of music. When asking her why she sings, she states, “I sing because music has the ability to touch hearts with a greater power than words can ever do. The written word is powerful on its own but paired with a melody that can pull the audiences heart in a way that can only be described by experience, there is nothing like it. Music can be an answer to a prayer. Whether audibly said, or one quietly pled in one’s heart, I want to try to share a message of love, joy, and peace. Music is a gift of God, and I want to bless other people’s lives with it, as it has mine”.
