We are thrilled to welcome a new music manager on board at Polyphony Arts!
Margaret studied English and Modern Languages at King’s College, Cambridge, where she was deeply involved in the music scene, playing co-principal double bass for both the University and her college’s music societies. She went on to qualify as a solicitor in the City, before moving to the United States, where she specialised in international corporate law going on to teach at Harvard University. Margaret has also enjoyed a successful career as a consultant in the public sector, and recently worked as Head of Market Intelligence for a major international law firm.
She currently serves as a local councillor and was Town Mayor of Beverley in 2012-13, using her position to promote the arts and music education for young people. Margaret continues to play the double bass, sitting as section principal in the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra, for which she also serves as an executive committee member. She is involved in various other local music societies and festivals including Hull Chamber Music.
When taking a break from music and local politics, Margaret takes to the stand up comedy circuit where she performs at venues in London and across the North East. She is also in demand as an after dinner speaker.
