Her partners in chamber groups have included Jeffrey Swann, James Campbell, members of the Avalon Quartet, Barbara Westphal, Lucy Shelton, Charles André Linale, Anthony Marwood, Paul Coletti and Alberto Lysy, among others. A recipient of several prizes and scholarships, Margaret Lysy’s studies were pursued in England at the Royal Northern College in Manchester and the Royal College in London, studying with the noted pedagogues Richard Deakin, Felix Andrievsky and later Mauricio Fuks in Canada. She now makes her home in Los Angeles, dedicating herself to the art of pedagogy.

Enthusiastically committed to enriching young minds and developing musical skills, she founded and directed various string ensembles while residing in Canada, and was the Concertmaster of Montreal’s Ensemble Sinfonia for the 2002-2003 season.
