Orchestra Manager, Trustee
Margaret has been involved with NYO since 1998 when both her sons were in the violin and viola sections. Being a keen cellist herself with a great love of orchestral and chamber music making, she originally supported the organisation as a parent helper and this evolved into the role of Orchestra Manager.
“I have loved every minute of my time with NYO, in particular seeing players progress from the younger orchestra to tackling symphonies and concertos with the seniors. It is a privilege to have enabled and encouraged so many young people to be part of an orchestra, something which I believe is a quite unique experience. I know from my own sons that many will make lifelong friendships during their time with NYO. It's always exciting to meet past members years later and to find out what they have been doing with their lives. Although I no longer go on tour, I was lucky enough to go on 13 wonderful trips with NYO.”— Margaret Chadwick
