Flutist Morgann Elyce Davis came to her current place in Southeastern Pennsylvania via adventures living in the Midwest. An exercise and wellness enthusiast, she is an energetic performer and engaging teacher. When she's not planning a new adventure or exploring her surroundings in southeastern Pennsylvania, Morgann can be found performing in a variety of settings, teaching, and advocating for music and the arts.
Morgann's primary focus is aiding music students of all ages in their pursuit and enjoyment of music by helping each to develop their unique interests and talents. She currently teaches flute lessons and college level courses in Lancaster, PA and the surrounding area. Beyond teaching, performances such as house concerts, orchestral work, and chamber music serve as an outlet to share an infectious love of music. Morgann can be heard on stage with ensembles such as the Endless Mountain Music Festival, Lancaster Symphony Orchestra, Allegro Chamber Orchestra of Lancaster, and Opera Lancaster. In 2014, she joined one of America's newest orchestras, the Pennsylvania Philharmonic, an ensemble dedicated to music education and bringing classical music to communities in Pennsylvania underserved in the Arts. Prior to moving to Pennsylvania, Morgann performed with ensembles such as the Dubuque Symphony and Madison Symphony.
A strong advocate for the value of music and the arts, Morgann is on the Career and Artistic Development Committee of the National Flute Association, where she is the current coordinator of the brand new entrepreneurship focused C.R.E.A.T.E. Project Competition. Morgann currently serves on the board of the Allegro Chamber Orchestra where she works to engage a non-traditional audience and enhance music education efforts. Her newest role is as the director of the NextGEN Youth Music Program in Lancaster County.
Recently, Morgann created the Story Soundtracks program with Duke Street branch of the Lancaster Pubic Library as a way to combine her love of reading and love of music. The pilot program, which ran in the summer of 2016 featured three stories where students who attended became the composers, writing the soundtracks for instruments like alto flute and bass clarinet.
Originally from a small town in central Pennsylvania, Morgann spent four defining years at The Ohio State University studying towards a Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance (Magna cum Laude) with Katherine Borst Jones. Following her time in Buckeye country, Morgann received a Master of Music degree (Summa cum Laude) as a student of Stephanie Jutt at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Compelled by the incredible music of Jean Ferrandis and the desire to travel, she pursued study on scholarship as a member of his studio in Courchevel, Paris, and Southern France.
Morgann greatly enjoys the constant growth in finding her place in a fast paced music field and providing the best possible education she can for her students. When she's not working, she can be found practicing hand lettering, exercising and enjoying life as a newlywed, working on ambitious projects like their fixer-upper home with her husband.
