Margaret Dyer has carved out a unique career as one of the US’s finest chamber musicians.

She has been a guest artist with other chamber groups such as ECCO, the Knights, Moscow Chamber Orchestra, and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. Ms. Dyer was a fellow in Carnegie Hall's Academy Program and she has taught viola and chamber music in Mexico, Peru, Abu Dhabi, and around the United States.  Although her training was entirely classically-based, Margaret enjoys collaborating with artists of all styles.
