Margaret's choral singing and vocal training began during her secondary school years and continued at Wellesley College where she studied with Eleanor Davis and sang in the Wellesley College Choir as well as the smaller Madrigal Group. During their first year of marriage in Australia, she and her husband Peter slid into the new rage for American folk music by becoming the duo of “Peter and Margaret,” making the rounds of coffee houses and winning a performance on television. During graduate school, they both sang with the Berkeley Chamber Singers, which they emulated later with chamber singing groups directed by Peter wherever they moved. Margaret has also sung with the Camerata and Pro Musica at Yale and in larger ensembles, most recently the Philadelphia Singers Chorale. Since moving to the Hudson Valley, she has been singing with the Newburgh Symphonic Chorale and waiting patiently for an opening in Kairos. What a joy!
