Prior to her move to Europe, Margaret worked for 8 years for Opera Australia performing in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and toured La Traviata to regional centres in Queensland, The Northern Territory and Western Australia with Opera Australia’s touring arm, Ozopera.
In Australia Margaret performed as a Concert Soloist with many choral and symphonic organisations including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Institute of Orchestral Studies in Tasmania.
