Tegan Wahlgren is a composer, performer, and music producer based in Vancouver, Canada, whose scores and performances have been presented by Vancouver International Film Festival, musica intima vocal ensemble, and Music On Main. As an artist born out of Vancouver’s experimental music + independent pop scenes, with a background in Celtic fiddle and choral singing, Tegan moves with ease between genres and worlds. Her alternative pop project, Wallgrin, feels equally at home programmed at international popular music festivals (The Great Escape, Tallinn Music Week, FOCUS Wales) or by experimental/contemporary classical presenters (New Forms Festival, Music On Main, Western Front, Vancouver New Music). She holds a BFA in Music Composition from Simon Fraser University, and contributes regularly to various recordings as a session vocalist + violinist. As Wallgrin, she has released two albums — Bird/Alien (2018) and Yet Again The Wheel Turns (2022) — and was selected to participate in ARC 2023, Music BC's artist career development program.
